Landscaping ideas needed for front of barn

ritarooApril 8, 2010

Hi Everyone- Im hoping you can help me. Im looking to landscape the front of my barn. I am limited with space and I plan to create semi raised bed with about 2 rows of pavers. The barn is very plain on this side and tall (faces east) so I would like something to soften it and add color. I am a gardening newbie, so hardy plants are a must. I have not made the bed yet, so I can make it to whatever size you would reccomend, but as I mention earlier, I do not have very far out I can extend it.

I really appreciate your help!

There are so many ways this can go.... We need more info and/or pictures.

How big is the barn? Is it a full-sized barn, or a suburban barn?

What kind of 'feel' do you want for this? Do you just want tall/short/vining plants that look great together along the barn wall? Or do you have a picture in your head of what you want to see there?

There info please.....
