That sounds wonderful. I'm located in Broomall, PA and I need privacy along an unattractive 6' high fence line. Initially, I plan to start at one end and work on an area about 18'-20' wide. The neighbor's side has a few evergreens in that section but the planting area would have several hours of direct western exposure. It would be protected by the house once the sun was low enough in the sky. The area in front of the fence is rather low and collects water during a soaking rain. I'm currently adding some stones as a first layer so anything I plant won't drown in standing water. I plan to build up the area by about 4"-6" with topsoil. The good news is that anything I plant will have the fence as an anchor. I love how you used a combination of silver/green and purple/red.
Any suggestions you could give would be greatly appreciated.

We could make a project for your wall. Consisting of plant selection and the composition on the wall, the irrigation system for it and the design of the supporting structure.

My private e-mail is ricardo@ricardomarinho.com.br, we can use it for further discussions, and I could also send you some more pictures or drawings.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Unsung Garden Hero: Fantastic Foliage
Perhaps this green wall is the true green tapestry. The creation of this wonderful vertical jungle shows us how the foliage available to gardeners is so diverse — and how when we see it used in this fashion we may see we really don't need so many flowers.More:Garden Design Essentials: Texture11 Inspiring Vertical Gardens
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Splendid Side Yard Designs
If your narrow side garden is blah, here's a planted wall that will inspire you to rethink that ugly fence or concrete block wall. There are several products, such as Woolly Pockets, available for creating a pocket-style planting system. And once you find the right solution for your vertical space, you can instantly turn ordinary into extraordinary. Lush, tropical plants give this side garden a definite point of view. It's a showstopper!More:Turn a Wider Side Yard Into a Gorgeous Garden Room
Make gloomy side yards enticing. Side yards are often overlooked in the garden as areas of little potential, and are relegated to storing trash bins, compost heaps and other eyesores. Side yards in the shade can look even more depressing.To make things interesting, plant tropical bulbs like elephant ears (Colocasia and Alocasia, zones 7 to 11) or winter-dormant gingers, like shampoo ginger (Zingiber zerumbet, zones 7b to 11), with its bright red cones held aloft by tall stalks in late summer and fall. These and other bulbs can be left in the ground or dug up in fall, depending on your climate. Out of the way to the side of the house, the tropical bulbs won't draw attention to themselves when they decline or get hit by frosts.How to turn a side yard into a glorious garden

The lush tropical planting in the planted wall - is this something I could recreate inside No 93 or in front garden, given that the rear garden faces north so is unlikely to support this look.
