Landscape Design- need some ideas
This is looking straight out the back door:
This is looking left:
This is looking right:
Our house was built too close to the back property line and the original excavator sloped the back yard down to the fence (about a 45 degree pitch right into the fence) making the back yard virtually unusable, not to mention overlooking our neighbors.
The backyard faces due East, giving it a lot of South exposure to the sun. Any Ideas for landscaping? There is a Weeping Plum and Japanese Maple next to the deck, and that is a Pendula Cherry in the corner, and we planted the emerald green ThujaÃ¯Â¿Â½s on the other side of the fence.
It is about 25' to the fence, and 100' wide. I was thinking about planting some Sweet Autumn Clem. along the fenceline. Other than that I don't have a lot of ideas.
*Really need some help clarifying a vision for this space. I like the idea of perennials and foundation plants; I don't mind pruning. Looking for a nice place to spend quiet-time, aesthetically pleasing, and privacy if possible (loud neighbors)
Thanks for any thoughts you might have.
