CiB Yard of the Week – 2016
Week 9-111 Myers Crescent: I chose this yard to be featured this week because my neighbours give me a beautiful view every day! The flower bed in the front is a variety of plants, all sizes, types and colours. What a pleasure to see them all in their glorious splendour. They work hard to keep the yard neat and tidy all season The lawn is always trimmed and green, which makes a fine canvas for the big oval flower bed and pine tree. Well done!
Week 7 – 302 Marsh Street: This shady yard combines manicured lawns with well-placed rock and mulch beds, creating a yard that is appealing and diverse. Add a couple of flag pins and you’re ready to golf! The landscape is accented with a wooden wishing well and several tall cedars, as well as artfully-arranged pots and bright, blooming flower beds. Well done!
Week 6 – 426 Claustre Avenue: Look what you can do in “about a year” when you bring a new house to an older lot. The owners managed to save the existing trees, plant a brand new lawn and add some colourful flower pots. We are excited to see what you do next year.
Week 5 – 604 Griffin Street: The bright and beautiful yard at 604 Griffin features incredible landscaping – no wonder it was chosen to be the yard of the week! This yard features some spectacular flower arrangements. Another great feature is the winding rock path accented with driftwood and boulder sized stones that weaves through the front lawn. This yard really brightens the neighborhood, and helps make Maple Creek one of the most beautiful small towns in Canada. Excellent job!
Week 4 – 201 Cypress Street: Drive by 201 Cypress and see why it was chosen as yard of the week! This yard boasts well tended trees, shrubs, winding beds with a variety of perennials and potted plants. Home built arbor, planters and water wheel help create this stunning corner lot. Xeriscaping along the side yard is hoe to three red and white handmade giant wooden chairs and pots loaded with colourful annuals. For a little surprise go by after dark and see this garden oasis light up. Great job!
Week 3 – 308 Parsons Avenue: A variety of shrubs, colorful perennials as well as potted plants create an attractive curb appeal at 308 Parson Avenue. In addition, on the alley side, perennials are planted along the fence, adding to the overall beauty of this property and giving it the honour of Yard of the Week. Well done!
Week 2 – 22 Harrigan Crescent was chosen as yard of the week for its vibrant, well tended flower beds, unique planters and neatly trimmed trees and shrubs. The colorful front flowers stand out against a backdrop of sumac which screen and protect the front of the house. Water conservation is paid heed to with the use of mulch and gravel and a rain barrel. Always neat and tidy, the back fence encloses wide bands of perennials, bushes and trees. Clematis, daisies, lilies and colorful poppies are currently in bloom. The stunning metal tiger lilies that grace the back of this property are work a second look.
Week 1 – 113 Lonsdale was chosen as yard of the week as it is always neat and well tended. It combines the best of xeriscaping but also includes plantings of drought tolerant material. Plantings have been thoughtfully placed right around areas where down spout occur to take full advantage of any rainfall. This yard is very welcoming even though xeriscaping can sometimes be stark and cold.
