Yard of the Month

March, 2007

Craig and Mel Riber
101 Dewitt Circle.

Starting with a renovated centipede lawn, the front area of their yard is impressive with camellias in colors of deep red, yellow and white and pink. These, along with several others located throughout the landscape confirms that Mel's favorite is the magnificent camellia, also our state's official flower. There is a cluster of mounding dwarf Yaupons near the lamp post leading into their dwelling. Ivy, ferns and some small azaleas line the walkway. Two iron trellises hold climbing variegated Jasmine. Perfectly pruned Japanese yews, a Mahonia holly surroundied by numerous azaleas line the narrow, yet well groomed walkways.

This beautiful home and garden that the Riber's enjoy immensely is certainly an asset to our Lake Forest neighborhood.
