The Yard-Of-The-Month (YOM) program has been established to recognize the efforts of residents within the neighborhood whether they are homeowners or tenants, who demonstrate a clear and consistent desire to maintain or improve their respective properties above normal expectations. The Beautification Committee wants to give you the recognition you deserve for creating a beautiful, well kept yard. This is a great way to improve the value of your home and make your neighborhood a better place to live.
25TH day of month – all entries must be submitted via website form(www.opena.org) or email sent to any OPENA officer to be considered for that month’s “Yard of the Month”. Anything received after the 25th, will be considered for the following month’s “Yard of the Month”.

Here is what you need to do:
Dee & Lisa have lived in their beautiful home on Cripple Creek Drive in Oak Park Estates neighborhood since 1998. Her yard is like a phoenix rising from the ashes! A fire in 2008 destroyed the front yard and burned the hedges and bushes to the ground. Dee and her yard man have worked tediously over the years since the fire to rebuild the garden into the lovely landscape that exists today. They did a lot of work to first improve the soil to ensure the new plantings would thrive in this location. Her yard is framed by two massive oak trees which provide shade during the heat of the afternoon. Dee says that this year’s spring rains have really brought her garden to life in a magnificent way! Dee’s landscaper friend Buddy Mullino recently planted 100 caladium bulbs which should be sprouting up in June. By early July, her yard will be glorious display of pink caladiums that Dees says will match her front door! Her back yard is also a lush green paradise with plantings along the creek that runs behind her home. Dee’s yard is only outshined by her magnetic personality! Visit her home and admire its beauty by walking along Cripple Creek near Trailridge! Thank you, Dee & Lisa, for sharing your yard with the residents of Oak Park Estates and Druid Hills!
