|Our backyard needs a hug. I would love to drop some serious cash back here, but what we will be able to do is just continue to clean it up, remove bushes and trim trees and keep working on small projects until they all touch one another. Because we are fixing the pool, we thought we should start in that area. |
I don't know if this is right, and I plan on taking some landscaping classes, but I like to start with the walls of the garden, then the flooring, then build the rooms and then decorate. I don't like looking at fences and I like privacy.
At Oxbow, a neighbor had dug a pool and not removed soil, so his yard was three feet higher than normal. He could mow his lawn and look right over our fence. I planted photinia along that fence, and it took awhile, but eventually it grew tall and dense and we had the privacy we wanted. So, that is what we did this weekend in the pool area. We planted 32 photinia plants.
