Great list! I can add- turn your books around for the page-edge to show. The all white look can lighten the feel of the room. It is a bit harder to find a book but its fun to go searching too!

Just to refocus attention on the purpose of this blog.........Grow a lush privacy screen. What folks need are recommendations that will be manageable. This is not about demonizing a poor plant for doing what comes naturally to it. It is about looking for options that we can reasonably live with. If folks want to containerize the grass on a patio they will have a lovely attribute. If folks want a screen along a property line there is probably a better option.

Upon buying my home I soon realized that one of my neighbors did not use any type of window covering at all (most of their rooms face into my backyard)...and the cedar fence was much too short to give any sense of privacy. I quickly planted Monterey Bay Eugenias for privacy. They grew in and now offer complete privacy. The only thing to note is, until they are established they can quickly grow and become top heavy if not trimmed.

We're moving...Yay!! From 7500ft in the Rockies where NOTHING grows (for long!) to the Hill country of Texas, where everything grows for most of the year!
Downsizing from an acre+ to a small (55+ Community) home, where neighbors are a little closer!
Back yard has live oak, and not much else, and is north/east facing. Any ideas for screening shrubs/trees that might grow to 5-7 feet?
Thanks
