The winning yard for the Oscar Smith district was noteworthy for its overall visual appeal, emphasis on providing for wildlife needs, and creative use of space and materials. The yard features a diverse selection of plant materials, including trees, tropicals, vegetables, and flowering shrubs and perennials, with well-defined stone pathways and borders. Ms. Swartz has provided for birds, turtles, and squirrels with numerous feeding stations, birdhouses and water containers, and accented the well-mulched beds with interesting statuary and pots. Attention to detail is evident in the intimate backyard theme gardens (enchanted forest, Italian garden) which invite rest and reflection. Ms. Swartz’s creativity and hard work definitely show in this yard.
