UNT Football Players Cleanup Denton!UNT
Several Mean Green Football players have used their summer to volunteer with KDB to clean up Denton. They participated through KDB's Special Cleanup program, where we provide cleanup supplies and a location for you and your group to cleanup. They certainly did a great job the various times they went out - thanks so much!

Special Cleanups are flexible and impactful, and is a great way for your group to make a difference. Sign up your family, business or organization today by emailing volunteer@kdb.org or calling (940) 349-8737.
July's Yard of the Month WinnersYOTM
802 Rose St - Jorge and Gladis Sanchez

Jorge and Gladis were excited to win this month's Yard of the Month! The yard received three separate nominations this month, making it a clear eye-catcher within the community! 




















701 Ridgecrest 

This yard is a green oasis. The owner describes it as a Native Fairy Garden. It is filled with Texas natives and garden gnomes. Previous owners designed the yard and current residents used their hard work to build what is an outstanding yard on the block. 




















1100 Ector - Tyler and Nicole

After having a professional design a landscape plan, the whole family has made it a reality by installing drip irrigation, planting native plants, laying mulch, providing pollinators, birds and insects food, protection and water. There are a variety of roses, one of which has been on the property since the house was built in the 50s. The homeowners use DynoDirt. 
525 Northridge - The Alexander Family

The Alexanders have lived in this home since 2001.  Each year a bit more lawn goes away and beautiful deeply mulched beds are created. They inherited two magnificent old trees in the front yard and add ornamental and fruit trees every year, including several from the Keep Denton Beautiful Tree Give way. This young family enjoys the great out of doors and creating the perfect yard to suit their needs in the front as well as the back.




1819 Mistywood - Tim

Tim uses DynoDirt on his lawn. The beautiful trees that populate his yard provide some shade for visitors, and the plants that line the fence make his home look that much more inviting. Tim was honored to receive the award, and takes great pride in adding some beauty to his block.
