9th Biennial Beautification Contest Winners
Best in City
Carol Costigan’s multiple gardens earned her the “Best in City” designation this year. Carol has turned a steep, sloping lot into multiple levels of sun and shade gardens. A peaceful waterfall drops into a charming, secluded pond in the backyard.
Best Curb Appeal
The gardens at Dennis Green’s home are charming, full of interesting sights at each nook and cranny. Beds hold brightly colored annuals, perennials and even a charming wishing well. All these visual components earn Denny “Best Curb Appeal.”
Best Use of Small Space
St. Timothy's Episcopal Church
Small spaces can have a huge impact. In the center of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church is a Prayer Garden. The serene small space wows!
Most Outstanding Trees
Tree perfection resides at Bradley Shanker’s home. The sheer quantity and quality of blue and green evergreens, deep crimson Japanese Maples and bright green Gingko trees overwhelm visually. The “Most Outstanding Trees” call themselves home here.
Creve Coeur Racquet Club
What do you do when you have tennis courts, pool decks and brick walks? You plant containers! Creve Coeur Racquet Club has containers beautifying all spaces that can’t be gardened. Huge containers of Elephant Ears, Santolina, Sunpatiens and “Eyeball Plant” bring punch and color to these spaces and earn Creve Coeur Racquet Club “Best Container” status.
