Yard of the Month
We begin the 2017 Yard of the Month Program with Cecy and Mike Alvarez’s
home at 1822 Waterford
.  The variety of colors and textures makes you want
to linger to look for all the surprises that you may find under a shrub or by the
front door.  The cheery baskets on the elegant iron door pick up the colors of the
begonias by the entryway.  Trees are leafing out and the grass is getting green
so it looks like spring is well on its way.
November 1st marks the beginning of Winter Water Conservation for Richardson,
shifting the time of day when lawns can be watered. Residents may water their yards at
any time on their twice per week designated watering days (see chart to left) to avoid
watering when temperatures may drop below freezing. If water sprinklers run overnight
during freezing weather, they can cause dangerous conditions on roads and sidewalks.

Yard of the Month:  Selection Criteria

  1. Landscape: tree, bushes, flowers, etc.
  2. Lawn: mowed, edged, and healthy
  3. Cleanliness
  4. Special beautification efforts / ideas: decoration that enhances the landscape to add beauty and make it special or unique
  5. Overall appeal of the front of the house
  6. Zone: selection from different area of the neighborhood as much as possible (not a must)

Note: The reason for selecting homes from different zones is to encourage the neighbors from all areas to maintain their yards and
provide visibility of the YOM program. The objective is to keep the neighborhood beautiful and keep up the value of the
neighborhood. Most of our neighbors take pride, understand their responsibility and keep their yard good looking throughout the
year regardless if they are selected for the YOM.  Sherrill Park HOA thanks these homeowners for their commitment and support to
keep the neighborhood beautiful.
