Hi I 'm new to this...
I am in Opelika and have posted a bunch of pics on the Cottage forum. I am at a loss as to what to do with my backyard due to shade and drainage problems combined. They have given me some food for thought but I would love to hear from natives of the area. We have to get permssion if we want to remove trees or change the fence as we are in the Historic District. I had planned on joining the Master Gardeners but they have change their date to the fall for their organizing meeting this year so I am on my own.
Noone would believe we have been here 5 yrs!!! The landscape is slowly deteriorating due to my poor skill and the increased shade each year.
Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I have very little talent but am willing to try. Thank you , Caroline
