Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


Yes, I’m helping make your neighborhood beautiful

Sometimes a neighborhood just needs a little brightening and you never know what simple thing can do that. When I see a yard with lots of flowers in a neighborhood with no landscaping or any sign of green, it just makes me smile as one owner has taken the steps to make their yard shine and in the process has done the same to the neighborhood.

The Beautiful Neighborhood

To those of you that are those who have those yards that make a neighborhood shine and bring a smile to my face… THANK YOU!

Todd, I was at a condo listing of mine this morning in Kent and noticed one of the neighbors with just such a yard.It did make me smile and you're right....I really appreciated it! Congrats on your 2011 5 star too by the way :-)

Flowers and greenery do make a neighborhood look appealing.  When I list a home I try to give it curb appeal by planting lots of colorful flowers.

Well said, Todd --- sometimes it starts with one home and then another and then another.  A great point for everyone to consider.

Your right, Todd, it makes you feel good when you see a well-tended, attractive yard! I think we can all appreciate the time, effort and sometimes, the artistry, that the homeowner put in. Plus, it is an inspiration for others who may be stuck wondering what to do!

Where I live now, I am on 6 acres...  So I really don't have a yard...  Anything I grow the rabbits/deer/lizards and whatever eat everything...  But when I did live in the city, I really like to have a good yard!

That is one bright red flower and it does give a little something to the home or the yard.

Todd - There is something about beautiful red flowers. . .You can't miss 'em!  Your photo is so sharp that you can even see the "freckles" on the petals.

Wow!  What a gorgeous color!  I am no green thumb, but coming up my drive, I see a beautiful purple/blue hydrangea and 3 brght yellow potentellas, so I fake it!

Listen to Chris 'when I move to the city?'. LOL, I'm moving to the big city so I can have FLOWERS! No rascals like deer & other wildlife eating all my stuff!

Hey, I'm the person with the flowers! Some people got it, some don't. The people with the dead bushes & burned out lawn still haven't found their green thumb.

I envy those who have a green thumb. I love flowers .

Todd-Nature does such a brilliant job, puts HDTV to shame.

I wish I was this house, but hey, I'm happy to have neighbors who are and that I can hire people to help my yard.
