(Fuquay-Varina, NC – June 19, 2012) – Preston Development and the builders of South Lakes are recognizing and rewarding their home owners this summer for keeping their lawns beautiful. The Yard of the Month will be selected based on overall appearance including lawn maintenance, flowering features, neatness, and more. Nelsa Cox, master gardener and owner of Fuquay-Varina's Garden Hut, will select a winner each month. Jason and Leigh Anne Pulse of 535 Apalachia Lake Drive won Yard of the Month for May and will receive a gift certificate to the Garden Hut.
The Pulse's use a wide variety of plantings and hardscape to create an oasis of their very own. "Although still a work in progress, our newly created outdoor living space affords us the opportunity to spend time with neighborhood friends who have become like our second family," shares homeowner Leigh Anne Pulse. "With the new landscaping and patio, we'll enjoy more wine tastings, outdoor movie nights and dinner by the fire with family and friends for years to come!"
"South Lakes' homeowners take great pride in the appearance of their homes," shares Vanessa Jenkins of Preston Development. "This Yard of the Month contest is our way to thank the homeowners for their dedication and a fun way to spark some friendly competition within the community."
