GREENVILLE — Two gardens were chosen as The Ohio Association of Garden Clubs Residential Landscaping Award winners for the month of June by the Ladybug Garden Club. Both gardens received outstanding achievement in design and maintenance of residential property and community beautification.
The gardens of The Steyer Family, located on East Harmon Drive in Greenville, showed beautiful prolific perennial gardens along with container ferns in front of their home and outstanding container gardening to highlight the deck and back yard area. Mindy and Matt Steyer, along with their sons, Gibson and Grady, have landscaped their entire back yard in the 10 years they have resided there. Their dedication and love for gardening certainly shows.
The gardens of Bill and Barb Young of the Chestnut Village in the Brethren Retirement Community, show just how much beauty you can create in a short amount of time when you have the love of gardening. The Youngs, parents of Jenny (Dan) Berger, moved from Lebanon into their beautifully decorated retirement home just two days after Christmas in 2016. Since then, they have worked to update the landscaping in the front with boxwood, hosta and more. They have a special talent for planting containers — two urns in front have Vinca vine, begonia, spider plants, springeri and tradescantia pallida “spiderwort.” This couple also have outstanding containers on their deck as well as unique yard art. Their porch area is tastefully decorated that reflects a “Welcome” feeling.
