Ideas for new area...
I would be very grateful if someone has a few minutes to make suggestions.
We just finished building a retention area around our (soon to be improved) deck and I would love some ideas for what to plant. We are adding new lattice under the deck that will be placed in front of the railroad ties.
This area faces N/E and gets full morning sun and is not shaded until late afternoon/evening. It needs something to anchor the area just to the right of the grill (which is 4 1/2 ft deep) and the large curved area that wraps around the corner of the deck (which is 5 1/2 ft deep). To start with I'm looking for those anchor trees/shrubs and shrubs/flower bushes to hide the lattice. Eventually I'll add annuals along the front edge. We have beautiful trees around the perimeter of our yard and a great view of the common area behind and to the north of us so I don't want to plant anything that would greatly obstruct our views.
Again, any ideas will be much appreciated! Happy Spring!
