Need advice with on my small yard. Please help!

angusboomMay 21, 2014

I have a small backyard that I hate. It is small and narrow and has a retaining wall running along the left side. I hate the wall, I always wanted vines or ivy on the wall but am not sure what to do with that. Does anyone have any tips or advice for me? im open to anything, I want to like my yard, please help!

back up with the camera and include the house in the picture so we can see how it relates to the yard.

I'd like to see the top of the retaining wall.

I don't know - maybe this is all the yard that's available for planting anything... a dense neighborhood of townhouses/rowhouses in New York? Not everyone has vast expanses to putter around in.

I think it is all there is. Still, plantings need to respond to their surroundings ... which we have no idea what is there.
