Landscaping ideas for along backyard fence
Jennifer Bush
January 5, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We recently pulled several plants from our back yard. The first, in the photo called "side," once had a Chinese bellflower plant that was nice but got really overgrown and out of control. I'm thinking of putting a small raised garden there, mostly for herbs. But I'm open to other ideas too.

I need some ideas for along the back fence. There were 4 tall flowering plants there but they never did very well. As you can see, it gets nice sun (this is at about 1:30pm), but the light does tend to get blocked by our orange tree and the neighbors trees. The yard already has a lemon tree, two orange trees and a grapefruit tree, plus two dwarf pears. We're looking for some color. Must be kid and dog friendly. (I have a child with autism who tends to put everything in his mouth.)

Ideas? Thanks! Oh - this is in San Jose, CA.

So I realize that the photos aren't labeled. Looking for ideas for both sides of the orange tree in the sunnier photo - the one where you can see the climbing structure.

Hi Jennifer,
You can definitely make great use of your garden. Because you live in a sunny city, San Jose, I think you need furniture that you could easily move it to stay in the shade.
For example, the rolling bench could be a great addition.

Please find bellow the link of the website. Let me know what you think about it.
