What to plant? New addition to house.
We have put an addition onto our house. It is right in your face when you pull in our driveway. It is 2 stories and all siding- no windows but a small one- because my husband built it not wanting anyone to see in from the road or front. The back of the addition is ALL windows- overlooking our 3/4 acrepond and woods. I am very upset about the ugly siding. A trellis would not be tall enough to make much difference. My husband says that nothing can be attached to the siding- moisture will get in. Our drive way- gravel and hard rock under- comes right up to this building. And plumbing and other pvc pipes are all around the area in front. I suggested a raised bed. He says no- it will be too wet and seep into the building. It is also a shady side of the house. I guess I could get some big barrels and put poodle evergreens in them? We like a more natural, wild look. Hostas won't grow mainly because we have voles that eat the bulbs. Same with tulips (another issue.)
