MIDDLEPORT — Each week throughout the summer property owners in the village of Middleport are recognized for the care they take of their yards.
Week 13 — Rodney and Kristen Roush
Rodney and Kristen Roush live at 960 Ash Street in a “bee-utiful” home surrounded by old growth maple and river birch trees. The never-die flowers in lava rock bordered by brick, enhanced by the porch arts and crafts gives this front yard an eloquent look. The back yard faces Powell Street and is just as clean and neat as the front. You can see the care and pride they take in their home.
Week 14 — Elaine Miller
Elaine Miller lives at 566 South 4th in this “bee-utiful” older home. Elaine does all of her yard work herself with occasional help from her grandson. The landscape is nicely done with retaining pavers and tastefully placed figurines. Hanging ferns, roses, live-forevers, and hedges surround this home with class and style.
Week 15 — Jill Carpenter
Jill Carpenter and her family are lifelong Middleport residents. Jill lives at 171 South Third. The small town pride can be seen in the way her yard and home is kept. The bubblegum ground planted petunias and hanging ferns are “bee-utiful” and make a great addition to Middleport’s yard of the week.
