Congratulations to Wendy and Paul Phelps
When you go by the magnificent home of Wendy and Paul Phelps, the ivy-covered pedestals with beautiful white, cast iron pots spilling over with begonias catch your eye. These bright spots of colour trail all through their lovely formal gardens right up to the front door. Their cheerful variegated hostas are set off by a variety of flowers at the right of the house. All of this, along with the boxwood hedges and interesting front walk make 17 Kerman Avenue well worth visiting.
Winning gardens are chosen based on our criteria for curb appeal, colour, design and maintenance. Please visit our website at www.grimsbygardenclub.ca
