Larry’s yard demonstrates pride of care and an awareness of the environment. He has created an especially colorful and balanced landscape which is impeccably maintained. The front lawn features St. Augustine grass, which is properly mowed, and an appropriate selection for the Hampton Roads area. Foundation and other flower beds are neatly edged and mulched throughout, with many colorful annuals and perennials. His yard offers comfort to birds and pollinators, with numerous bird houses, a bird bath, and a pollinator garden featuring a number of flowering native plant species, including honeysuckle, coneflower, joe pye weed, bee balm, and dutchman’s pipe vine. Larry has purchased many of these plants over the years from local plant sales. He composts yard waste and has a rain barrel installed in a convenient location off his deck. A large, mature native loblolly pine graces a corner of his backyard, providing shade to his deck. Larry even uses fallen needles from this tree to mulch beds in his backyard.
