The Ellisville Garden Club selection for the Yard of the Month of October is the home of Noel and Jennifer Rogers, 103 North Calhoun St. in Ellisville. Older homes often have mature, over grown shrubs that benefit from drastic pruning. Noel carefully reshaped the mature azalea bushes and camellia trees. He added hibiscus and knockout roses to dress out the front planting beds that frame the porch. The sweeping front porch welcomes you with a lovely swing and rockers that are set among the large ferns. Wonderful care has gone into reviving one of Ellisville’s oldest homes. The Ellisville Garden Club encourages everyone to show community pride by taking the time to present their yard and home at its best.
