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".
