The City of Fairfax’s Community Appearance Committee has honored three homes with Residential Appearance Awards. Committee Chairman Kirk Holley presented them to the winning homeowners at the July 22 City Council meeting.
The recipients were Douglas and Zhida James, Lauren Fyfe, and Dirk and Ellen Brouwer. According to the judges, the Brouwers’ yard on Cedar Avenue is “well-kept,” with an “inviting” walkway leading to their stately house.
Fyfe’s yard on Cornell Road was praised for its many native plants and “rustic, woodsy charm.” And the James’ Mosby Road home was recognized for the “splashes of colors across the property,” plus the edge plantings by the woods.
