Liberal’s Yard of the Week PDF Print E-mail

Summer is in full swing and so is the yard of Rick and Melissa Brenneman. Theirs is the first yard of the week for the season. It is located at 1421 N. Jordan, and is an example of what can be accomplished in two years. When they moved to the residence, there were two large sycamores in the front and Bradford pears and maples in the back. Melissa does most of the planning and Rick helps out where and when needed. In the front is a brick planter which contains showy impatiens and million bells. A large planter by the front door adds an inviting aspect to visitors as they approach the house. A bed in front of the house has been planted with variegated euonymus and two interesting forsythia standards. When approaching the back gate, an island bed draws the eye. An amazing rosemary, roses, barberrys, coreopsis, dianthus and a clump of aspen can be found in this bed. The back yard has a wonderful gazebo surrounded by flowers. There is a partially enclosed patio and a deck. A honeysuckle climbs one wall of the patio to add to the privacy. Included in the back if a blue spruce, a locust tree and a newly planted birch. This yard is amazing and would be hard to leave. Everyone should take some time to drive by and see just what can be done in such a short time. Courtesy photo
