Yard of the Month

August 2022 – NW Michelbook

Owner: Peg Miller, Gardener: Jack Sawcheck,


Do you pass by a yard or garden each day that you think deserves recognition? Send us a note to nominate it for the Yard of the Month award.

This month we chose a yard due to multiple requests from the public over the years. Our guidelines do not allow us to select professionally kept yards which this one is, so we have had to enjoy it but have not been able to select it as Yard of the Month.

However, this homeowner and gardener have been working together for over twenty
years. Every year it is exceptional. Our hope is that Jack Sawcheck, the gardener, will be interviewed for the newspaper article to help others understand what he does and how he selects the plants, cares for them, etc.

Where can I find it?

This remarkable yard may be found at:

1815 NW Michelbook Ln
McMinnville, OR 97128
