The Eastside Garden Club is pleased to award Ross our “Yard of the Month” for August for his miracle on Duc’s Court. Behind his garden gate, hidden from view, is a lush green sanctuary. A curtain of thick bamboo soars 30 feet high. There’s a banana tree, Italian cypresses, palms, a chocolate mimosa, swamp hibiscus, jasmine, a pomegranate with fruit ready to pluck, and on and on.
