Out of Ideas for Side Yard
It's been about a year since I started the "mother of all hellstrips" project, and I am straining towards the finish line. Our corner lot is very large. We've tamed most of it, but I still have the out-of-sight and out-of-mind yard between our driveway and fence.
The area is 26ft by 39ft. I'm tempted to just choose a large tree, toss a few bushes in and call it a day. I'd like to get something going within the next couple months. Any ideas are welcome--especially about suitable trees. We are in Monterey County. The area is NW exposure and our soil is a bit alkaline. Thanks!
