When you see a beautiful yard and find two people digging and watering on a hot summer afternoon ---you have two dedicated and committed gardeners.  Meet Cindy and Walt Jenko. 

A lovely, but modest brick two story has it all when it come to ambiance.  A striking color scheme of red, green, white and charcoal catches the eye immediately.  Carefully arranged and very healthy plants stand out in individual arrangements.  (I dare you to find one wilted petunia.) And finally the flowers themselves take  your breath away.   Red geraniums, white petunias and green spikes are everywhere in window boxes, planters and flower beds.   Red rose bushes are throughout the yard with a striking rose tree taking center stage as you enter the house.  Did I mention the Summer Chocolate Mimosa Tree, above ground pool with a deck full of flowers  or unique walkways?   Old concrete, walks, steps and porches have been enhanced with an overlay of concrete that looks like flagstones.  The Jenkos  are surrounded with charcoal and gray flagstone walkways.  To get a better idea of how this works check out the website of Spuhler Custom Concrete.
