Picture-Perfect Landscape

Monday, September 24, 2012

Passing by 618 Sixth St. in Monett is like stepping back in time to a fairy tale cottage. Phil Knepper, home owner, and his wife, spent six weeks working to landscape the front yard, installing pocket gardens, a natural rock water fountain and a rose-covered trellis. According to Knepper, the cozy outdoor seating area provides a welcome setting for an evening of listening to the water burble over the rocks. Knepper plans to landscape his back yard as well. "I don't have to mow!" he said. Landscaping plants include zinnias, petunias, roses, water lilies and cat tails. [Times Photo by Melonie Roberts]
