Yard of the Month
Mike and Kari Rex
1305 NW Zinfandel Ct
Directions: From Baker Creek Rd., take a right onto Merlot Drive. The house will be on the left at the corner of Zinfandel and Merlot.
Mike is a teacher for Patton Middle School and Kari is 1/2 owner of New to You resale store. Kari loves to landscape and it shows. In a year and a half after moving there they removed 15 trees and took 13 pickup loads of debris to Greenlands so they could start all over on landscaping. They added rocks and hardscapes then pruned the remaining bushes back to show interesting branches. This garden shows what talented gardeners can do with an overgrown yard.
