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

Richard and Karen Stahle are the proud owners of the Yard of the Week and rightly so. It is located at 1821 N. Calhoun, and they have lived there since July of 2011. In those three years, an amazing amount of hard work has certainly paid off. In the front yard, they have planted four trees – two Lindens, a red bud, and a crabapple. These trees all bloom so this adds a beautiful effect to the yard. Each tree is circled with river rocks which just seems to make them stand out. The Stahles added a wonderful corner bed and filled it with salvia, orange lantana, purple scaevola, peonies, mums and euonymus. The purple and orange colors seem to shout “Look at me!” A new walkway leads to the back, and as you round the corner of the house, a wonderful backyard appears. There is a lot to look at including a vegetable garden and a large planting bed. This area has been planted with red crype myrtles, salvia, white verbena, zinnias and Mexican heather. A large fountain adds to the atmosphere with the sound of the running water. Two sitting areas give the owners a choice of where to relax and enjoy the results of all their work. This yard is certainly one that should not be missed, so take time to look it up. Courtesy photo
