At Saluda River Club, we take pride in bragging about our homeowners. The people who live in our award-winning community help to make it the amazing place that it is, which is why we have started the Yard of the Month award. We want to acknowledge the gorgeous yards throughout our neighborhood that make us so proud!

We are excited to congratulate the Avinger family for being Saluda River Club’s August Yard of the Month! Their beautiful landscaping can be seen in the River District and features a variety of perfectly placed hedges, trees, shrubs and flowers. Here is a little more about the yard from the homeowners themselves:

“Our goal was to create a more formal look in the front with boxwood hedges, and we tried to establish a more matured look with the larger Crepe Myrtles and Elm trees. Another of our goals was to use more perennials like the Drift Roses, Black-Eyed Susans, Daylilies, etc., so that we could plant less annuals. We really enjoy our courtyard area, which is unseen from the road, but contains evergreen shrubs and perennials such as Veronica Speedwell, Daylilies, Goldenrod, Guara, Knockout Roses, and Cone flowers. We have Zoysia grass, which Jim loves to cut because the lawn is small and easy to maintain. I do most of the weed pulling and pruning and we get a lot of help from Wes Stillinger (Lexington Lawns and Landscape) and John Long who is the landscape architect.” – Dit Avinger

Congratulations on your gorgeous yard and thank you for keeping Saluda River Club looking so beautiful!
