    Hi. The plant in the foreground is a coleus. I can't remember which variety. Behind that is perilla. It's extremely free seeding if you let it get to that point, so I keep after it. Thanks for your question. Have a great day.

This second view is looking from the seating wall back toward the street. The challenge here was to hide views of the street and neighboring houses, as I wanted to have a degree of privacy.As I planted my trees and larger shrubs, I made sure they were precisely placed to hide as many of the undesirable views as possible. When siting trees and shrubs, always look at them from multiple viewpoints. Sometimes moving a plant 6 inches can make an immeasurable difference in the overall feel of a garden.

better photo of the curved walkway with steel edging for the sides to create a nice curve and large beams to show each step clearly
