On November 8, 2013, Yard-Nique was proud to partner with Meritage Homes in their Operation Homefront initiative in which three military families received mortgage-free, brand new, homes from Meritage.

We were thrilled to be part of this undertaking and donated our services to install landscaping for the 2,066 square foot home that went to Sergeant Lynch of the US Army and his family!

Read more about this inspiring project, and the 3 deserving families that received homes, here.

Check out a couple of photos of Lynch’s new home below.

Carolina Preserve – Fall Wreath Making Project

on Oct 25 in Giving Back, YN News

On September 26, 2013, residents of the Carolina Preserve community in Cary, NC get ready for the Autumn season by hosting a “Pheasant Feather” Fall Wreath Making Project.

It was a full house for this festive event. Residents who wanted to show their Fall colors brought a full size natural twig wreath to decorate and paid $6 to participate. Yard-Nique provided everything else needed for this project, including instruction and guidance from Yard-Nique staff.

Residents exercised their creative muscles using various types of pheasant feathers, natural dried elements, nuts, pine cones and ribbon. The event included step by step instruction to follow if needed and everyone was free to just be creative using the available materials.

Participants enjoyed coffee cake and cider while creating their Fall masterpieces. The results beautiful and no two wreaths exactly alike!

Check out all the photos from the event here

Carolina Preserve – Dish Garden

on Aug 13 in Giving Back

On July 26, 2013, Yard-Nique hosted a Dish Garden class for residents of the Carolina Preserve community in Cary, NC. As part of the “Getting Their Hands Dirty” program introduced by Carolina Preserve, the event was held at the community clubhouse in Bradford Hall. With the materials provided by Yard-Nique, and a little help from our staff, residents were able to choose, design, and plant their dish gardens with various sedums and other succulent plants to create some wonderful little plantings that look great on a table top or on a window sill.
