This beautiful little garden was created out of a long-time desire to beautify a plain unused backyard into a garden that was both useful and scenic. The owner had a wish list from magazine articles and could barely contain her excitement over having some of these ideas come to life in her little part of the world. She had some problem areas like disguising the triplex at the back of the property that they used occasionally when relatives came to visit so it had to somehow be incorporated into the design.

Also her new puppy, Hildy, a lab mix, was digging and needed a spot of her own for her own needs. She loves garden art and arbors which would figure into the new design also. Color-wise, the client wanted bright jewel colors that pop, the brighter the better. This assignment was fun.
