On a hot week in June 2017, Joe P. Dena II moved into 4215 Pershing Avenue, fondly christening it “Pershing Manor.” Joe brought with him his love for design and landscape projects, along with a collection of irises straight from his grandmother’s home in McKinney. Inspired by visits to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, Joe has filled his front yard with white and green plantings and always adds seasonal touches, like pumpkins, scarecrows and mums for a pop of color. Joe says he gets a lot of joy out of seeing the smiles from his neighbors when they walk by–he thinks the dogs even smile.

His festive fall display has earned Joe AHNA’s November Yard of The Month award. We can’t wait to see what he does for Christmas. For his efforts, Joe receives a complimentary annual membership to AHNA and a $25 gift certificate to Archie’s Gardenland.
