|Hassan and Nadia Dakroub with English Gardens GM Matt Borden|
“Seeing other people enjoy it [the garden] is my pleasure.” - Pearl Fryar
With this idea in mind I contacted J. Patrick "Pat" Pepper with the thought that Dearborn should have its own such "Yard of the Month." The young energetic editor of the Dearborn Press and Guide moved quickly to get approval and set up the program. The entries flowed in! All I can say is "WOW!" Our town has some impressive and creative yards! It was a pleasure to review the entries and to check out these lovely homes. Yardeners are passionate folks.
After careful consideration the July 2011 Yard of the Month (drumroll please) goes to Nadia and Hassan Dakroub, for their lovely organic English garden located in Springwells Park.
Upon meeting them, one would never guess these educators juggle jobs, family and garden tending, but they certainly do it well.
Cudos to the Dakroubs.
