July 2022 Yard of the Month
Kent Taylor, 1925 St. Andrews
Kent retired in 2015 from 43 years in city management, including 29 years as city manager of McMinnville. He started mowing and weeding a big NE Portland yard where he grew up, Other than hiring help for stacking rocks, Kent has done all the yard work himself. A pilgrimage to Scotland in 2019 provided inspiration for a stacked rock shrine in the back yard. What is now a massing of annuals for in the front, becomes a massing of tulips in early spring. Kent enjoys being outdoors and creating a different “garden pallette” each year.
