It’s hard to tell because of the overgrowth, but there are three large tiers in our backyard before it flattens under a group of hardwoods at the top. I’m trying to decide if I want to try planting herbs and a few veggies like tomatoes and pickling cucumbers on the first tier. My hope is to put up salsa and pickles this summer. My quandary is the deer and chipmunks. Do I try to fight this battle? Or just buy the produce from a local farmer?
Looks like you have a lot of potential! I love the steps idea!!
you are making me so jealous. I love gardening. Maybe I’ll plant stuff where I’m renting. I love all the pics you posted. I say try to plant the stuff. There are lots of strategies for dealing with deer.
How wonderful that your yard has so much potential Leighann! I am not a gardener, but I do love to look at pretty flowers and plants. And I sometimes wish I had a lovely garden. But then I have so many allergies, I could never work in it.
I know you will set your mind to do it and it will be lovely!
I love the fountain of succulents! That would work really well on my tiny patio and with my super dry summers.
fountain and chessboard are my vote
You could friend Bill Weaver on Facebook and see pictures of his backyard – it looks similar to his in landscape – he’s my cousin and loves to share his and Pat’s backyard with friends. Here’s a link: http://livefrompleasantchapeli.blogspot.com/2011/06/bills-botanical-is-doing-its-magic.html
