Local realtor begins Yard of the Month contest Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene recently rolled out its Yard of the Month program in Fall Creek. Realtor Niki Davis came up with the idea to recognize the most beautifully landscaped yards in the neighborhood where she does the most business – which is also the area she calls home. She selected the first winner, Kathy Palmer, in late September. “Her yard was bright and colorful,” Davis said. “It just stood out in my mind.” Davis said the Yard of the Month program is one way to bring the local community together. The recognition also encourages neighbors to take care of their lawns, which in turn maintains home values and protects everyone’s investment in the neighborhood.
