A pair of large ash trees shade the charming, south-facing front porch of Chad and Ashley Schwander’s home at 108 W. Vest St, the Jefferson Garden Club’s selection for June Yard of the Month.
When the Schwanders moved to Jefferson in 2009 they brought with them a favorite large hosta and a small burning bush (euonymus) for placement in the front perennial bed.
Hours of hard work moving rock have resulted in a dry stream bed on the east side of their home. Chad has plans to turn an old pond basin into a bog garden.
When all the work is done, the Schwanders enjoy relaxing on their beautiful new back deck.
