The Clermont Garden Club’s choice for October “Yard of the Month” is located at 12128 Lake Shore Drive in Clermont.  


When the homeowners moved in five years ago, their yard started with just grass.  Now they have transformed the yard into a beautiful and functional living space. On one side of the driveway there is a row of camellias currently covered in buds and along the other side are living sculptures called Sky Pencil scrubs. They grow perfectly straight as if they were trimmed that way. The weeping Ilex tree and several topiary boxwoods are scattered around the retaining walls, paver patio, and house. They are framed by juniper, Indian Hawthorn, and colorful foliage plantings of lorapedlum, crotons, and Hawaiian ti. A sprinkling of blooming iris, plumbago, agapanthus, and petunias complete the picture. Well done! 


Clermont Garden Club members meet every third Wednesday of the month at the clubhouse located at 849 West Avenue,  Clermont, Florida 34711.  All guests and visitors are warmly welcome.


Clermont Garden Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
