Yard of the Month

June 2018 – NW 10th

Santiago Tenesaca and Hanna DeMaster


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.

Santiago and Hanna are both teachers and have three children. They have lived in this house 1 1/2 yrs, and Hanna is the gardener, although she claims to be a beginner.

Their garden has a vegetable garden in raised beds, and she uses the rails from her baby crib for climbing vegetables.

One technique she used is to spray paint small rocks red and put them next to her new strawberry plants to deter the birds. They peck at the rocks and find them hard and tasteless. Hanna says she hopes it works.

Where can I find it?

This remarkable yard may be found at:

329 NW 10th
