Yard of the Month – May 2016

May 1, 2016 - May 31, 2016

2036 Tippah Ave.

Congratulations to Lisa Springer and Udo Robitsch at 2036 Tippah Avenue for winning the May 2016 Plaza Midwood Yard of the Month.  Lisa and Udo have lived in Plaza-Midwood since 2000. Lisa grew up in the Charlotte area and moved to Germany for eight years to live with Udo, a German native. While there, Lisa was inspired by the lovely gardens rich with plants and flowers. After moving back to the US in 1999, they desired to buy a home so they could cultivate a garden of their own and Lisa and Udo chose 2036 Tippah Ave. Bit by bit, they have worked together to change a nandina plantation into their version of “paradise.” Udo and Lisa love the creative process of designing the garden and nurturing its growth and maturation. They love Plaza-Midwood because of all the friendly neighbors, dogs, and the ever increasing number of beautiful yards. Walking by their house, Udo is quick to offer you a sprout or seedling from their lush garden. Udo and Lisa are also loyal supporters of the Community Garden in Midwood Park.

Your neighbors salute you, Lisa and Udo! Thanks for brightening your plot in our wonderfully lush 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!
