What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Bonar Swezey added this to Plant a Pocket Garden
Pockets of grasses, succulents, and colorful New Zealand flax make a charming entry garden.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 4 Steps to the Perfect Garden
Think about where you'll put your "hidden area." This could be anything from a secret spot where you can enjoy your wine on summer evenings, to a clever hideaway that prevents trash and compost cans from becoming eyesores. This outdoor space has a smart space to tuck away a barbecue, trash can, or spare bit of patio furniture while not in use.
Lisa Frederick added this to Let's Talk Trash Bins
2. Create a solid screen. It would be easy to tuck recycling bins or a compost pail behind this compact design — which looks like an architectural element of the home. It's not high enough to mask a standard wheeled trash can, but a smaller one would fit nicely.
