2509 Oak Park Rd.
Christina Wassum’s home is a great example of what can be done with a shade yard. The front yard is full of blooming Lyre Leaf Sage and Bluebonnets both blue and white. Native plants are abundant including species such as Red Yucca, enjoyed by hummingbirds, Autumn Sage, and native trees. Very attractive and perfect.
2217 Emerson Ln.
This yard is full of plants that remain evergreen in our Texas heat. Connie Watkins describes the beautiful yard as a product of trial and error – encouraging words for new gardeners or homeowners! This eye-catching yard features a decomposed granite walkway and beds edged with landscape rock to accent a variety of plant species.
2204 Parkside Dr.
Donna Irving’s yard is filled with her favorite plants. There is a stunning assortment of flowers including peonies and irises as well as numerous ferns that create a woodland effect. In 1984, when Donna moved into the home, there was not a single tree on the property! Today, many trees grow tall beautifying this lovely yard.
1917 Willowwood St.
Lloyd and Elizabeth Fitzpatrick have resided at their home on Willowwood since 1994. This beautiful yard is an inspiration to anyone who has struggled to create a garden in the shade. The homeowners began with a single tree and through years of hard work have rendered a dazzling space filled with a robust variety of shade-loving plants among stately trees overhead. A handsome diagonal brick pathway cuts across the yard and leads one through the garden to the front porch. They describe their yard as a labor of love, and do all the landscaping themselves.
705 N. Locust St.
This month’s business winner, Mulkey-Bowles-Montgomery Funeral Home, has a well-manicured lawn that features beds of seasonal flowers with purple shrubbery, Loropetalum, and Variegated Liriope grass. Adding to the beauty, the yard also features magnolia trees and a tiered fountain. This attractive property is hard to miss on one of Denton’s well-traveled streets!
8217 Montecito Dr.
Bluebonnets fill the front yard of this lawn in south Denton. The property also features Lacebark Elm shade trees and a variety of shrubs line the house. The beds adjacent to the house are maintained with mulch and a natural-looking stone edge. In this nicely-groomed yard, all the elements complement each other to create an appealing aesthetic.
901 Jackson St.
When Jeff and Gladys Wilson were newlyweds 13 years ago, Jeff noticed a few Yard of the Month signs in yards across Denton. He told Gladys one day they would have a sign in their yard. The Wilson’s yard features beautiful knockout rose bushes in full bloom. Tropical plants are also incorporated into the landscaping. These species were planted by Jeff for his wife who is from Guatemala.
