Ms. Davis’ large corner lot has a neat and attractive appearance. She created flower beds and filled these with Japanese Maples, a pleasing assortment of perennials and Black Diamond Crepe Myrtles which she brought from her previous home in the Outer Banks. Employing healthy lawn practices, Ms. Davis leaves grass clippings and minimizes the use of herbicides on the lawn. In a side flower bed, there is Milkweed and Parsley intentionally planted to attract the Monarch caterpillar. A native Tulip Poplar tree, a large Camellia bush, and a native American Holly tree grace the backyard. Beds around the garden shed grow tomatoes, peppers, pineapple lilies and pimento peppers. Ms. Davis said she has always loved to garden and considers it relaxing and rewarding to work in her yard.
