September Yard of the Month
The September Yard of the Month is the culmination of 20 years of do-it-yourself efforts. It is owned by Russ and Julie Gillis, who live at 723 Pacific Drive.
When the Gillises bought their home, there were only a few trees scattered around the property. Since then, they have constructed walls, built mounds, planted flowers, shrubs and trees. The diversity of the trees they planted include spruce, a variety of ornamentals and shade trees that are impeccably maintained and beginning to display fall colors.
As the September Yard of the Month winners, the Gillises received a $25 gift certificate courtesy of Bookcliff Gardens.
The Grand Junction Forestry Board would like to thank all of the 2013 Yard of the Month entries and winners. These yards make our community a more beautiful and happy place. Look for more in 2014.
