YARD OF THE MONTH for SEPTEMBER 2020
September’s Yard of the Month goes to Amina and Hamdija Torlak of 5510 Fountainbridge Lane, congratulations!
As you drive into Huntwick from Strack Road, take a quick right turn down Fountainbridge Lane and you will be treated to a spectacular lawn. Amina and Hamdija have taken a quaint yard and made it into a showstopper. Taking center stage are Giant Leopard Plants that resemble lily pads throughout the beds along the home. Stroll up the sidewalk and you are greeted with bright red geraniums and red New Guinea Impatiens. Double Impatiens cradle Variegated Faux Lilies with begonias forming a colorful border around the hand laid brick borders. Various shades of Coleus add color and interest to the flowerbeds where the lush azaleas bloomed in Spring. Roses are an ever so subtle addition to the flowerbeds along the side of the home. We got a special peek into the backyard, which is a gardener’s haven. With paved walkways and a fire pit, complete with a seating area. A centerpiece of this backyard oasis is the grape vines that form a canopy over the seating area. Gaze toward the garage and you are invited into a side yard via a climbing rose trellis.
Thank you to the Torlak’s for keeping Huntwick beautiful!
