Yard of the Month Winner Announced
Steve & Linda Verhalen have enjoyed living in The Woodlands
since 1988 and in their Autumnwood neighborhood since
1995. Linda enjoys her time in the yard, attending to
the annuals and perennials that keep the scene colorful,
while keeping a constant vigil over the falling leaves,
branches and pine straw that are a challenge to the
homeowners lucky enough to call The Woodlands home.
A wide assortment of ornamental trees, shrubs and flowers
decorate the Verhalen's shady yard. Among them are
Impatiens, Potato Vine, assorted Ferns, Iris, Camellia
Japonica, Camellia Sasanqua, Goldust Aucuba, Azaleas
and Aspidistra. For the more sunny locations in the
yard, Linda selected Nandina Compacta, Brunsfelsia (Yesterday,
Today and Tomorrow), Viburnum, assorted Liriopes, ornamental
grasses, Knockout Roses, Iris and for annual color she
chose Petunias, Zinnias and Silvia, among others.
It is evident the Verhalens take pride in their house
and yard and encourage others to "Take Up The Banner"
and show pride in The Woodlands by keeping their yards
neat and clean. Also, be safe by meeting and greeting
the neighbors and appreciate all of the opportunities
available in The Woodlands.
Congratulations to Steve & Linda on their award.
The October 2008 Yard of the Month was chosen by Sally
