Our new yard (over 50 plus years old) is now one I do not quite recognize but which I already know will be much easier to maintain and will provide so much more blooming and colorful shrubs in all seasons as it matures. I love that many of the existing plants could be worked into the landscape, something I requested. I now have a sun-protected patio to the southeast, a raised-bed area for growing garden plants and herbs and a rear bank area at the back of the house where the slope is now protected with rocks and good drainage, along with an extensive sprinkler system to keep things watered. Thank you, Ann.- Blessings, Carole
Dear Ann: Thank you again for your coming up with the new, less expensive design--think it will do just every bit as well, too for the clematis. We are now enjoying the last of the beds which were just finished, and I am pleased to have this now accomplished. By the way, the plant I kept referring to as a Penstemon and which I just loved was fountain grass, Orientale and it is now happily up near the front part of the bed near the flag pole. The new rhododendron on the front of the house south bed are now in, too and look so nice. The new pergola will now go in in a couple weeks.- Valerie M.
