Susie Shelleman stands in front of her and her husband Wayne’s yard at 1539 Sherwood Drive, which was chosen as the June Yard of the Month. The yard has an assortment of perennials, annuals and roses that create a colorful palette through the seasons. Nominations for the July Yard of the Month are due July 24. To qualify for Yard of the Month, the yard must be within the Grand Junction city limits. The front/side yards — what can be viewed from the street — will be judged on appearance, tidiness as evidenced by pruned, trimmed and shaped foliage, defined lawn, borders, flower bed and visual appeal. SPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL.
