PhotobucketThis was my side yard right after I laid out the beds and put down mulch a few years ago. I have been adding a little every year. I tried a row of holly which looked awful, I think the were diseased. Then decided to go for a mixed look with shrubs and perennials. I like it much better. I'll post pictures later this summer when things are blooming.side yard

I haven't mulched or edged yet since it's been raining for 3 months straight here. I've tried lots of perennials that didn't do well in part shade. I'm going more for interesting textures and foliage now.
thanks for looking

Beautiful transformation. The mixed hedge is a great choice there.

What is the chartreuse plant? Love that bright pop of color.

Your beds are so nice and cool looking, perfect for a hot summer day! That arch is wonderful, too. What do you have growing up the sides?

That is a great transformation. I love all the pops of yellow throughout. I also love that arbor!
