How do you keep the plants from overheating in the metal planters?

This site and exposure are not that intense. The metal actually helps to warm the soil which is good for the veggies in the PNW.

You are such an artistic and creative inspiration for my own use of salvaged materials I've saved from being buried or scraped. Here is a pic of a 1950's round propane tank.

The board fence is constructed out of 1 x 4 cedar boards around a 4 x 4 frame.

That's a beautiful layout. Can't wait to see it when all of the plants are established

No edibles for these clients. They travel a lot for work and didn't wish to have any edibles in their garden, (which, btw, require a ton of regular maintenance), wishing instead to enjoy their space when they are home from long travel trips by lounging and hanging out.

A lot of clients just want a low-maintenance landscape that looks great most of the time, but I always try to encourage at least a few edibles, like blueberries. In California, we get no rain from May through October, it's an irrigated landscape. You might as well get something for your water.

Yes, they are Black Bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra). There are two kinds of bamboo; Running & Clumping. Blank bamboo is a running bamboo. You need plant this in contained environment & use bamboo root barrier to minimize the root spread.
