Jim and Maureen Dickenson 7807 Kessler Ridge Place

This was the hardest month I’ve had picking a Deercreek View because there were so many beautiful spring gardens in our neighborhood. This beautiful home owned by Jim and Maureen Dickenson had the personal touch that gave it an edge. The front of the house is landscaped with deep green hollies along the wall and then boxwood schillings, dusty miller and mums are planted in front of them. The front porch is accented with two pots of bright red geraniums. Two very large oaks, one a live oak and the other a pin oak provide needed shade for our summer heat. The pin oak is lined with ligustrum, crepe myrtle, caladium, crotons, loropetalum, super blue liriope, knock out roses, Aztec grass, marigolds, begonias and coleus. The side entrance of the house has a holly on each side along with New Guinea impatiens, variegated pittosporum, juniper and Japanese yew. The side garden has a red maple tree, azaleas, caladium, coleus and marigolds to finish off this striking view.
