Plenty of trial, almost no error
Butlers create beautiful yard by blending various plants and colors
Leader Assistant Editor
Ask Clay Butler what the secret is to having a perfect yard, and he’ll tell you it’s “trial and error.”
Looking at the yard, however, it’s impossible to believe “error” has had any part in it.
Clay and Chrystal Butler, who live at 948 W. 720 North, Tremonton, have spent the past few years putting in a beautiful yard, which features a wide variety of plants, rocks and colors all arranged in a perfect way. Anyone who passes by their home would no doubt agree the family is well deserving of a 2010 Leader Green Arrow award.
According to Chrystal, Clay is actually the one who does most of the work.
“He won’t admit it, but he is,” Chrystal said. “A lot of times, he gets home from work, especially in the summer, and stays out until dark every night of the week. He’s always either mowing, weeding, tinkering or planting.”
For Clay, working outside is something he’s always enjoyed, as his parents to this day maintain a beautiful yard and garden. He says working in the yard is a hobby, as it gives him an “outside” thing to do.
