Privacy Fence Landscaping (Pics Included)
After two full weekends and many after-work hours, the privacy fence is finally finished! Now that the fence is up, I am working to develop some kind of landscaping plan for my backyard. Struggling with where to put beds along the fence and how to shape them in a way that will soften the fence and eliminate some of that "boxed in" feeling.
I prefer a garden that is predominantly green and white, with texture for interest. If any color at all, soft pinks or deep purples would be my preference. Please see photos below which were taken this evening when I arrived home from work. The yard faces southwest, but the southern sun hours are more partial shade due to the trees along the fence line.
I am considering a hedge of dwarf limelight hydrangeas along the full length of the garage. Other than that, I'm not really sure where to start. As an FYI, there is an 8' wide gate to the left of the garage in the first picture that may be hard to see (it is divided into two 4' sections and opens into the yard).
I look forward to hearing your feedback/suggestions. Thanks in advance!
