Stevens Win August Yard of the Month

Congratulations to Liliana and Bruce Stevens who received this month’s pick for the Brookwood HOA’s Yard of the Month.

The Stevens moved to 408 Wayfare Lane just over a year ago from Colorado and say that they are still learning about gardening in Florida. “When we moved in,” Liliana says, “there were some bushes and other plants and not much color. We wanted to create not only an attractive garden but also to incorporate some Florida native plants which can help provide natural habitats (many of which have been disappearing due to land developments) for birds and other pollinators.”

The Stevens say that they also want to have a diversity of plants which hopefully will make their garden more naturally resistant to pests. In their garden you can find Florida natives such as Black eyed Susan, Lanceleaf Coreopsis, Blue eyed Grass, Coontie palms and Firebush in between Pentas and Bulbine.
