Yard of the Month – June 2016
June 1, 2016 - June 30, 2016
2119 The Plaza
Congratulations to John Carroll at 2119 The Plaza for winning the June 2016 Plaza Midwood Yard of the Month! The rainbow of roses in full bloom caught the eye of the committee, but upon closer inspection, there is a lot more to love about the front lawn of 2119 The Plaza. John says the thing he likes most about Plaza Midwood is that there isn’t an expectation of “corporate” yards with traditional landscaping. John moved to the ‘hood from a community in New England which had very little grass and most front yards were gardens. He wanted to replicate that look, but unfortunately his yard did not have a single bush or plant worth saving – only weeds and a backyard covered in bricks and a lot more weeds! John dug up the old bricks and used them for new walkways in the front to create a bit of structure and then the rest is the result of practically weekly visits to his favorite nurseries. While John doesn’t spend much time outside cutting grass, you can usually find him pulling up miniature acorn trees in the evening.
Congrats John and thanks for making Plaza Midwood such a unique community!
We select a winner by the 10th of each month, so please nominate your neighbors who spend time in the yard at YardOfTheMonth@PlazaMidwood.org and help us recognize those who make Plaza Midwood so special!
