SEPTEMBER YARD OF THE MONTH
911 WATERVIEW CIRCLE
Pam Thompson and Mike Gross moved here from Dallas in 2009, but still works for the City of Dallas. They love this area for the large trees and the friendly neighborhood and the convenience of the location. Pam considers herself a Texan after moving to the Houston area when she was a sixth grader. They are active members of the Congregation Beth Torah. They have 3 cats and a very friendly dog that has to say “Hi” to everyone when they are out walking.
They enjoy doing their part to protect the planet like getting their electric power from renewable resources (wind & solar) for years now and use only electric lawn equipment for their low maintenance and organic yard. They have an organic garden of vegetables in the back yard. Pam said that they love the idea of “the right plant in the right place” because it makes gardening and yard work so much easier. The giant Chinese Pistache tree, the large Live Oak tree and the huge red flowering Crepe Myrtle trees shade the entire front entrance where they often visit with the neighbors. The perennial cosmos are showing their fall colored blossoms now – hard to see in this photo but they are a beautiful signal that Fall is just around the corner.
Thank you Pam & Mike for making the neighborhood beautiful with so much “curb appeal”.
