Mixed Border Questions
Hi, I was hoping to get some ideas on a mixed border I'm trying to do to create privacy on the one side of my yard.
I already have some newer plants but might need to rearrange them.
How do your alternate the shrubs? Do you use a couple of the same shrub next to each other or do you vary them? I was thinking of layering some various shorter shrubs in front of the taller ones, but for the back row, I'm not sure how to arrange the shrubs.
I've got two tea olives right now for the back row. A flowering quince, butterfly bush, spirea, and ninebark to go in front of the taller shrubs. And then there's a couple trees in there too.
Any help would be much appreciated!
