August Yard of the Month Winners
Congratulations to August’s Yard of the Month winners, Meagan and Justin Eldridge of 1842 Fillmore Drive. A garden full of impatiens, variegated liriope and dwarf hydrangeas give this home variations of blooming color. Other features that set this home apart from the competition are the inviting front porch displaying a rocking chair with decorative pillows, a floral wreath hung from the front door and a “Welcome” garden flag amongst the flowers. The Eldridge’s will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Southern States to assist in keeping their yard in showcase shape.
Each month from May through September, beautiful yards and proud gardeners in the community are recognized and rewarded through the program. City staff and elected officials are proud to recognize the efforts of our residents and encourage everyone to follow their lead to show what beautiful properties we have here in Creedmoor.
