May 2019 Awardees George Thomasson and Michael Sprouse

Homeowners George Thomasson and Michael Sprouse built their house 6 years ago this August and the yard was a blank canvas. We wanted more of a casual park look rather than an over groomed landscape. To save money we set about planting our own beds that would bloom in Spring, Summer and Fall. Annuals are planted in pots around the yard rather than in the ground. Some bushes and trees were gifts from friends around the region and our Forsythia was rooted from branches from a friends yard. With much love, care and minimal maintenance small trees, bushes and flowering perennials become larger with each passing year.
