October Yard of the Month Winner Announced

October 2009 Yard of the Month
Hazel Coulson, Autumnwood Way
 
Hazel Coulson and her late husband, Judge Ed Coulson, moved to their Autumnwood Way home in 1982 which they selected because of the unique lot which has frontage on three streets. They utilized a professional landscape contractor to complete their lawn. Since then, the landscape has been neatly maintained, upgraded when needed and added to on occasion.

Hurricane Ike took down a 12' caliper Pecan tree, and was replaced by a Live Oak. Next, a Bradford Pear at the front door developed a disease and had to be removed. A complete spot makeover where the Bradford Pear was resulted in a new fresh look which includes the centerpiece fountain, an ortamental iron trellis, a beautiful Camellia Sasanqua, Japanese Boxwood, Asian Jasmine and highlighted by fall garden mums in clay pots. The yard is enhanced with Pink Crepemytrles ("my favorite color" adds Hazel), Magnolia Solangeana (Pink Magnolia or Tulip Tree by other names),Indica Azaleas,Chinese Wisteria on a back wall, showy White Azaleas along the north wall, a formal planting of Dwarf Buford Holly, spreading Junipers and Asian Jasmine groundcover bordering the driveway and a massive Brown Turkey Fig as a centerpiece to the circle flagstone walk in the front yard.

All of this beautiful, well maintained landscape comes alive at night with the landscape lighting which was added this past spring with light fixtures highlighting the upper branches and trunks of the Live Oaks, a single light illuminating the intricate branches of the Brown Turkey fig (10' tall x 12' wide), walk lights and a single light spotlighting the beautiful fountain.

Hazel encourages visitors to drive by and admire her landscape both day and night ("With the lights the night view is wonderful"). "I am thrilled to have been selected as Yard Of The Month".
