Please help me with your ideas!
I came across Gardenweb couple of days ago and am very happy to find a place where I can learn and get help with my soon to start gardening experiences. We bought a house recently and are moving into it in about 2 weeks. After years of living in apartments we are so excited to start gardening in our front and backyard. I attach 2 pictures from a part of the front yard next to entrance. To start with, I need your ideas on what to put there to make the wall look so appealing to the eye. A tree that fits into a small space or may be a climbing rose? FYI we are in Bakersfield, CA. zone 9. Front yard is towards north so this part gets afternoon Sun. This space has sprinkler system but I am also going to take a very good care of watering each and every plant.
I appreciate your help.
