Help with landscaping SMALL backyard
I have a difficult space to landscape. Imagine a Capital T. The open areas under the top of the "T" are the open areas! There are 2 11x16 spaces. One space has a red Japanese Maple in the bottom half. The top of this half is dead grass due to our dog. I'll leave this side for now.... The middle is a brick sidewalk to the back fence entry.
The other half of the "T" space is the remains of a summer veggie garden and is now dirt--after cleanup. I'd like to landscape this side with possible raised bed(s)(even terracing) to house easy-care perennials or dwarf evergreens. Grasses are nice too. Any ideas, or is this too ambitious a project?
It gets full sun for half the day. And is at times during the summer quite dry.
Wish I could include a picture....
