May 2020: 5554 Goodwin Avenue
Congratulations to our May Yard of the Month - Kim Cattles and Vince Martinez of 5554 Goodwin Avenue!
Kim and Vince have lived with their four dogs in Vickery Place since 2003 and have a true passion for gardening. Hailing from Charleston, South Carolina and Southern California, they took what they loved most about garden design from those areas and incorporated them into their outdoor spaces.
The front yard features a shrub-lined curved walkway, crape myrtles, and topiaries which remind them of Charleston. In the backyard, a multitude of containers and pots in every size and shape are filled with flowers, herbs, and trees. They lead to the rear of the space where a Charleston-inspired courtyard garden is a shady respite. While Vince focuses on the fruit trees and herbs, Kim has the eye that brings it all together. Their team effort has produced a stunning space.
We’d like to express our ongoing appreciation to North Haven Gardens for their support of our Yard of the Month program. Kim and Vince will receive a $50 NHG gift card, and they can’t wait to see what their gardener has in store for them this spring! #northhavengardens #wewillbloomagain
Gardening Tip from Vince: When transplanting plants, cut the rootball diagonally from corner to corner before planting to loosen the roots. If the leaves don’t turn yellow, you know you’ve made a successful transplant.
