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

Frank and Shirley Hanna, who live at 1350 Jewell, have developed a landscape that certainly is a yard of the week. Pictured are the Hannas, son Matt, and Spencer. Frank and Shirley have lived at the residence since 1969, so theirs is a mature landscape. One of the first things they did was plant a locust tree in the front and a maple in the back. The two trees are now large specimens and provide a good deal of shade. Their son, Matt, helped while he lived there. He built a large planter under the front window which overflows with purple-leaved Swedish ivy. In front of the house is a large bed which contains a number of large pots. These containers have been planted with roses, hibiscus, petunias, rose moss, geraniums and sweet potato vine. A large euonymus borders the side of this bed. A bench has been situated so that one could sit and enjoy the view. A beautiful artillery fern shares this seat. There are two large rocking chairs which send an invitation to sit and visit. The back yard has a very nice covered patio which sports several hanging baskets and offers a cozy place to sit and enjoy. A cute storage shed is another spot to stop and rest with its covered porch. Moon flowers and roses have been planted to add to the landcape. There is even a home for the squirrels. Take a moment to drive by this home to look at all that has been done to this yard during the last 44 years. Courtesy photo
