Yard of the Month
The September Yard of the Month is awarded to Dan and Cindy Balmer of 3004
Wyndham Lane. The Balmer’s pristine yard contains an array of colorful bedding
florals, and their well kept landscaping showcases a variety of shrubbery in natural
shades and colors. The purple fountain grass and soft hues of the Japanese maple
complement the bright green pop of their potted vines.  It’s a lovely yard year round!
City of Richardson Watering Rules
Residents may water their yards at any time on   
their twice per week designated watering days (see
chart below) 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 a 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.
