JUNE YARD OF THE MONTH
706 Williams Way
The home of the Jay & Christine McKibben Family has much curb appeal with lush green lawn, three huge oak trees in front and thriving bushes. The porch entrance area with pots of colorful flowers and a wooden bench is a welcoming sight for visiting with friends and neighbors. They moved into Greenwood Hills a couple of years ago from nearby Heights Park area, and love their new spacious home and especially their neighbors. You notice the big swing hanging from the tree on the right side that provides hours of fun for the children.
Christine says she gardens by “trial & error” and also get ideas from neighbors as they have gorgeous yards. They had lost some shrubs due to the freeze, so they have planted Viburnum and Hosta in the front flowerbed and plan to fill in with more of the same plants and add a Pittosporum. The beautiful Hydrangea is a plant from her father’s recent funeral and she said that her dad would be so proud to know his daughter got Yard of the Month as she learned the love of planting from her parents. Along the driveway, they are working on planting “bee & butterfly friendly” plants. There’s a pot of Shasta Daisies from a friend, Lavender from another friend, Irises still growing from the previous owner, Salvia and a newly planted frost-proof Gardenia. Under the small oak in the front, the previous owner had planted Daffodils and Abelia (The tree and the American Flag is not shown in photo.)
