Yard of the Month – March 2016

March 1, 2016 - March 31, 2016

1720 Thomas Ave.

Congratulations to Zoe and Tripp Rives at 1720 Thomas Avenue for winning the March 2016 Plaza Midwood Yard of the Month.  Zoe’s lived in Plaza Midwood since 2000 – a time, as Zoe describes, when  Plaza Midwood truly was the “hood.” When she first moved in there was so much work to be done on the interior of the house, she spent most of her time restoring and upgrading inside. A few years later, Zoe met her now husband Tripp and he was eager to tackle the yard. Together, they tore out all the old, tired shrubs and installed American Boxwoods, Holly Trees, and Dwarf Boxwoods. They did all the work themselves, always taking time to relax and sip wine on the front porch at the end of the day to enjoy the fruits of their labor.  Zoe later became obsessed with vines, planting Clematis and Jasmine for a bit of privacy and spring fragrance. Their latest investment in the yard included new sod and a sprinkler system.

Be sure to say “hi” the next time you stroll down Thomas as Zoe says she loves trimming the front hedges (she’s been called Edward Scissorhands) and chatting with neighbors. Be on the lookout for a new cobblestone walkway…Zoe is always dreaming of the next big thing and keeps Tripp busy with a long honey-do list!

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!
