Each month the yards in our subdivision are judged. If the resident of the one that is considered to have the best display has not won the award within the last two years, is in good standing with the Association and agrees to accept the accolade, it is designated as the Yard-of-the-Month. A sign is placed in that yard throughout the duration of the month, a photograph and write-up are posted here on this web site and the winners are mentioned in our monthly newsletter.
January Winner - Amanda Applegath of 22530 Bucktrout
Amanda has lived in the Settlement for 34 years and has two grown daughters and one grandchild. Amanda is retired allowing her to indulge her hobby of quilting. Her favorite likes about the Settlement are it quietness, its well-maintained yards and the abundance of loving caring neighbors that exist throughout the neighborhood.
Her well maintained yard starts at the street with two large potted foxtail ferns that accent each side of the walkway followed by a live oak and water oak that offer her amble shade during the summer months. The curved flower beds bordering her home contain well-trimmed boxwoods accented with red crescent roses to their rear and both dianthis and pansies in the front. Completing her beds are a holly tree surrounded with bottle brushes on the west side and a Japanese yew and Indian hawthorns on the east.
We thank Amanda for her continued years of adding such beauty to Williamsburg Settlement. Congratulations Mrs. Applegath on winning our first yard of the month for 2019.
