City of Liberal’s Yard of the Week PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 18 July 2014 09:45

Small but striking describes this yard of the week. It is located at 418 N. Pershing. Archie and Debbie Walters are the owners, and they moved into the residence in 1981. About the only thing found in the yard at that time was an upside down side-car. Now, there is a lush Bermuda lawn that is always neatly mowed. Along each side of the walk leading up to the cozy front porch is a brick-bordered strip. Inside these beds are petunias and marigolds. An old apricot tree stands along the side yard along with roses and an interesting wandering jew. Debbie has used cute items to add a whimsical look to the yard. A walk to the back yard is made of old bricks which were already there but covered with about 8 inches of soil. When Archie started to rototill the ground, he found them. There is also a path to the alley made of these pavers. The backyard is a quiet secluded area. Debbie has planted tomatoes, peppers, and potatoes which are well tended. A planting bed along the fence contains four o'clocks and hollyhocks. Archie made a multi-hanging spot out of an old satellite dish post. These hanging pots are filled with rose moss, petunias, coleus, cosmos, lobelia, and alyssum. It will be worth your time to drive by this address and see this stand-out yard. Courtesy photo
