How about a few before and after photos to really show you what we’ve done to our backyard?
After (new tree by the outdoor sink in the back):
I placed flags where I wanted the new trees to be planted. It made for an entertaining conversation with the nursery, “That’s not the gas line, right?” Oh, no, I just took those flags and moved them, haha!
Before – too many random bushes and plants:
After, add two more desert honeysuckle and another climbing rose which will be pink and bloom all the time!:
Oh, and the buns really like the purple lilac vines I added to their area.
“Oh hey, this tastes wonderful, thanks!”
“Hey London, you should try getting back here, it’s even better from this position.”
I am pretty sure we are done until we replace the wood fence in the back with the white smooth stucco and brick border on the top. I’ll probably do the creeping fig (as seen on the walls at Biltmore Fashion Park) since they will be shaded on that side. I don’t anticipate that happening for another few years or so, but you never know with us.
We are going to have so much shade I can’t wait. Then come fall/winter, the leaves will drop and we can warm up in the backyard.
Diana Elizabeth is looking for a few more low outdoor seating for the bunny area, but it must be cheap. She’s on the hunt this summer for a good bargain!
