First, there's this exposed site in the front yard of this corner lot (formerly side yard, before the house's entrance was moved). But when this lovely pergola was constructed around a new patio and the only screening plants I saw going in the ground were grasses and perennials, I doubted there'd ever be enough privacy. How could they make such a mistake, I wondered. Now in its second year I've started loving this garden, even concluding that there's enough privacy for the homeowners to actually enjoy the patio. But still, with all their other great plant choices, why not some evergreen screening?
Well, more is usually revealed by talking to the actual homeowner in question and in this case, turns out they were thinking evergreen all along and the grasses along the road are temporary. Not bad for temporary, I say. Looking great, I add, and can I photograph it? Now who can say no to that?
