was thinking that yanking out that twisted cypress might be a start. Next step, reface the rather industrial-looking but very sturdy gate to the patio.
We could put in a bed of peppers and zucchini where those humpy bushes are, right by the wall./quote]
Ye Gods Selma, you have a phenomenal memory!
Xeriscape, with white or beige rock, works for me. A nice ocotillo in the front yard...
I like the humpy bushes but since they never bloom, they are going bye bye - they are azaleas and would like a home that would give them what they need to be stunning 4 months of the year. This yard apparently lacks something key!
DO the work, Selma? Are you nuts? Of course you arent. Werent we looking for projects for Mr Reinforce-every-drywall-nail?
Ok, Jacarandas get realllly tall. It can go at the bottom of the hill. The koi pond wont be koi, cause we're not buying fish that expensive for the raccoons to eat. (Sorry OT). Perhaps a waterfall, no fish except mosquito fish (gambusia), which are free from the county. And perhaps some tadpoles for the altoid.
I wonder how much water Snowbush trees need.
Altoid - curiously strong.
