Margie, I have been a silent admirer for years. I even refer my clients to your website! I really appreciate that you provide feedback/answers to questions. I have often wished this style of fencing was available...fond memories of my Michigan days. I have a small design/build firm in s. cal. if I ever have a client moving to Santa Barbara I will happily refer them to you! Keep up the good work!

@Ipeden: thanks for the kudos - nice to know there's a kindred spirit out there! I'd be honored if you were to refer us to your client should they move up to SB.

Ditch the orchard. Newly planted espaliered apple trees are at home in this perennial border, providing bushels of apples to go with an abundance of fresh bouquets. These trees have been trained as cordons, the familiar form of grape vines. Growth is limited to a few principal horizontal branches within easy reach.The cordoned apples provide needed screening for this front-yard garden, and the nearby flowers attract pollinators, which enhance fruit production. Tip: Annual dormant-season pruning increases the number and density of fruit buds, reducing the overall footprint of the tree while maintaining high yields. This garden is located on a quarter-acre four-unit multifamily residential site in downtown Santa Barbara, California. Vegetables, herbs, ornamentals and more than 30 fruit trees joyfully, beautifully and fruitfully coexist, thriving on harvested rainwater. Talk about getting the most out of your resources!

Small space? Espalier and graft. Apple, pear, fig and other fruit trees are easily espaliered (trained to grow flat against a wall, a trellis or an arrangement of stakes). This espalier provides screening and fresh fruit. Tip: Want more kinds of fruit than you've got space for trees? Select "fruit salad" trees with multiple varieties grafted onto a single espaliered plant.
