CREEDMOOR — Ralph and Barbara Fields’ yard in the 1900 block of Bowles Avenue has been named the Creedmoor Yard of the Month for July.

The Fields family will receive a $50 gift certificate to Southern States to assist in keeping their yard in showcase shape.

Bright daylilies, cheerful roses, variegated liriope and potted plants lining the front steps give this home variations of blooming color. Other features that set the home apart from the competition were the architectural trees, stone borders and the American flag displayed in the front yard.

Spring through fall, beautiful yards and proud gardeners in the community are recognized and rewarded through the program by the city of Creedmoor. Nominate your own yard, or your neighbor’s yard, by Aug. 31 for consideration in the September Yard of the Month contest.

Program rules include: all nominees must live within the city limits; winners from last season, condominiums, and retirement homes are not eligible; and nominations are assessed for the month in which they are received only, if your nomination is not selected, it must be resubmitted for consideration the following month.
