Yard of the Week — Judy and John Riopelle

This impeccably maintained corner property at 325 Tait McKenzie Drive, owned by Judy and John Riopelle, was chosen as this week’s yard of the week for many eye-catching reasons. Three attractive burgundy maples and three beautiful blue spruce anchor the garden’s front, side and back. The open iron fencing allows passersby to enjoy the water feature and plantings, and a curving white stone border highlights the fence. A utility box is cleverly hidden by shrubbery. Garden beds are neatly edged and mulched.

The Mississippi Mills Yard of the Week is sponsored by the Almonte and District Horticultural Society.
