February Yard of the Month

William and Marsha Stuart

170 Ridgewood

February's Yard of the Month belongs to William and Marsha Stuart, who have lived in Lake Forest since 1985.  Their lovely one-level home on Ridgewood welcomes you with a lovely brick stairway and a full front porch filled with white wicker furniture and a swing.  A perfect place to view their lovely front yard.  The front bed is bordered with Mondo Grass and is filled with Acubas, Chinese Fringe, with Dogwoods and Pine sheltering the plants below.  The walkway to the front door has a Camellia at the corner of the house and two very large Sago Palms with a lovely fountain between for the water feature.  As you approach the stairway, there are potted ferns and to finish off the left side of the porch, Azaleas.  The side drive has a Confederate Rose, Camellia, Dogwood and Hibiscus.  The home is so neat and appealing and now with the winter Ray Grass beginning it completes the entire front of the house.  The Lake Forest Garden Club is always pleased to find a home like the Stuarts' and will award them a Gift Certificate from Home Depot for helping to make Lake Forest a lovely place to live.
