June Ft. Thomas Yard of the Month, brought to you by Ft. Thomas Florist

Orthodontics Brings All the Awards to the Yard

Dr. Jeri Stull’s Orthodontics office on Highland Avenue has been named June’s Yard of the Month!  Fort Thomas Florist picked the yard for it’s perfect landscaping and immaculate lawn care.  I reached out to Michele Means, front desk administrator and marketing and advertising coordinator, at Dr. Stull’s office to find out how this yard came to become so award worthy.

I explained to Michele that this award is essentially the Kentucky Derby of Fort Thomas Lawn Contests.  Michele agreed and said that the office was honored to be June’s Yard of the Month.  She went on to say, “All of our patients are always complimenting us on our yard.  There are several people that work very hard to make it look so good.  All of our plants are planted by Fort Thomas Florist and Merkle maintains the lawn.”

I had to dive a little deeper into this trophy yard; I inquired to see if the love of landscaping translated into the Stull employee’s yards at home?  Michele explained, “We all do our shopping at Ft. Thomas Florist for our flowers, so we definitely strive to make our yards look just as good!” 

The perfection of the yard at Dr. Stull’s office would be difficult to replicate, but if anyone can achieve such a daunting task it is the employees at 637 Highland Avenue!

We are waiting to hear back from Fort Thomas Florist to find out the specifics that earned Dr. Stull’s office the June crown.  Fort Thomas Florist will also tell us what they are looking for in an award-winning yard, so that future yard enthusiasts can prune and plant their way to the winner’s circle!

You have 26 days to until the July Yard of the Month will be named.  Will your yard be the next Fort Thomas Florist Yard of the Month? 


  1. Great choice. Their yard looks great ALL year.

  2. Nice yard, but when a florist and lawn service maintain the yard, it should look nice. How about giving the award to homeowners or businesses that maintain their own yards.

  3. I agree. Great first pick for Yard of the Month. Our hope is that this will be a wonderful addition to our city's day-to-day.

    Congrats Jeri!

  4. There will be plenty of opportunities for others to win. This is best of the best. Just make sure that you get your nominations into Ft. Thomas Florist early and often!

    Winners get the sign, gift card to Ft. Thomas Florist and recognition on FTM and FTL.

  5. Couldn't have picked a better yard! Nice work Jeri and Fort Thomas Florist.

  6. Just stopped by to look at the winner. Pretty, pretty, PRETTY!!!!!!!! I love this new little feature.

    Can you please go over how we can nominate other yards?
