Terry and Clyde Trickey, 7 Wooded Way are the May Yard of the Month winners. Their house is for sale as they are moving to a nearby single story house after 17 enjoyable years in Oak Bluff.  

Both Terry and Clyde take great interest in their landscape. Terry uses perennial flowering plants when possible with annual for accent. A drainage ditch around the beds diverts water from Bermuda Tif 419 grass that loves hot weather and needs to be cut short.  Beds are enhanced with annual rotation between plantings and fertilizer with mulching. Texas hardwood mulch conserves water.

Neighbors state this award is most deserving!

September 2013 Yard of the Month
September yard of the Month September Yard of the Month winners are Carol and Wiley Christal, 4 Misty Woods.
The Christals have lived here 14 years. A gardening challenge has been yard maintenance and growing plants that thrive in drought and under the shade of 100 year old trees. White and pink caladiums and begonias do well.
Plants have been put in pots to provide more moisture and give greater display height in ground cover and near the sidewalk. Multi-level white rock terracing adds emphasis. There are plans to expand plantings in 2014.
Carol's love for gardening and her deep knowledge is influenced by her mother, a Yard of the Month winner 40 years ago in her hometown in Arkansas. Wiley, an engineer, maintains the sprinkler system and outdoor lighting. Special thanks go to Oak Bluff neighbors serving on the Committee - Natalie Osborn, Pam Capelli, Louann Woodall, Paul Margolies and Becky Margolies, chair.

Lewis installed a 4 cycle, 80 emitter drip system 4 years ago. A new timer allows drip cycles to be programmed separately for different watering needs. Portable soaker hoses are also used, and a water misting system is is in progress for the patio.

Yard of the Month April 2013
April is a tough month for judging with many trees still bare of leaves and grass looking more brown than green, but 5 Oak Moore defied all the odds! The lushness of color, variety of plant life, and the apparent loving attention to detail made this home shine. The Yard of the Month Committee was very impressed! They look forward to cruising Oak Bluff Estates early next month to see what everyone's been up to.
