1210 S. New York is this week's yard of the week. Linda and Larry Johnson built their home 30-plus years ago and, through the years, have accomplished their goal of making a yard that they can live in and enjoy. Next to the street is the mailbox accented with Karl Foerster grass. A bed outlining the sidewalk to the front door has been planted with charming blue scabiosa, and a row of boxwood draws your eye to the front of the house. A crimson king maple is standing in the front yard and to the side of this tree is a large bed outlined with a nice collection of rocks and a split-rail fence. This planting area contains three colors of hardy hibiscus, catmint, pink veronica, salvia, daylilies, coneflowers, asters and sedum. A weeping Norway spruce stands guard over this bed. In a corner by the house is a planting of elephant ears which have grown quite large. Following the walk towards the back can be enjoyed by looking at the many dahlias and the liatris. The back yard has a willow and a catalpa to give some shade to the side yard. A large brick L-shaped planter, built by Larry and outlining the patio area, has been planted with eyecatching sweet potato vines. A large grouping of rocks will soon find a home around a planned pond which will incorporate a free-standing waterfall. The back yard is certainly an area which is meant to be enjoyed with areas to cook, sit and plant. A row of cannas adds to the scene. Why not take the time to locate this address and see all that this landscape has to offer. Courtesy photo
