This garden was really under utilizing the side of the house and the access point for the garden.  When I saw the beofre shot, I thought it was an office building or something, and not a beautiful home.  How Sad!before and after garden side yard makeover

The before picture was taken from the front of the home, whereas most of the after shots are taken from the back so you have to get your bearings to really understand this project.  The fence was moved forward toward the front of the property allowing the backyard to re-capture the space.

Now it is a a shady oasis with sophisticated planting — the only thing I would change is to perhaps add or change planting around the AC to obscure  them a bit more…What do you think?
