The View - April 2015

For April 2015 the Deercreek Home and Garden Club is pleased to award the Deercreek View to the home of Richard and Linda Chafin, 9977 Chester Lake Road.

Even in winter this home captures your attention. Nellie Stevens holly trees, tall graceful palms and sagos line the walkways and welcome you to the front door guarded by two stately urns brimming with ferns. Foundation plantings of viburnum, shillings, Burford holly, azaleas, and loropetalum are repeated throughout on all sides while liriope and asiatic jasmine provide more continuity and symmetry. The side yards with stepping-stones and even a birdbath invite you to a naturalized area, and showcase truly magnificent philodendrons. This landscape is evidence of the premise that structural elements of hardscape, trees and shrubbery alone can create an inviting view any month of the year.
