Yard of the Month: May
The May Yard of the Month winner is Georgann Jouflas.
The yard at Jouflas’ home, 743 Wedge Drive, was renovated about three years ago to make the shift from grass to a colorful xeric landscape.
Jouflas has a passion for plants and gardening. She shared that having her yard recognized as the Yard of the Month has been a longtime goal that she can now cross off.
Yard of the Month, presented by the Grand Junction Forestry Board, The Daily Sentinel and the city of Grand Junction.
Nominations for the June Yard of the Month are due June 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 overall appearance, tidiness as evidenced by pruned, trimmed and shaped foliage, defined lawn, borders, flower bed and visual appeal.
