I was scoping out yard fences (and their reviews) on-line and in-store.
It turns out the latticed fence I liked the other day is not ideal for our area since we get occasional high winds. I now like this short little one
and this pretty scalloped one.
I just wanted to show these pretty solar powered flowers Home Depot sells for $15
Also, rather than using the smaller conventionally sized bricks as pavers alongside the new area I'm considering these 12" x12"step stones. They are about $1 each at Home Depot.
Home Depot has a lot of trees 50% off right now too.
Its warm outside (finally) so I spent a long time cleaning up fall debris, moving plants around and seeing what survived the winter. I think two of our three Dusty Miller plants made it even though they aren't rated as perennial our area! I also saw significant growth on the azalea and even the hydrangea has a few leaves. Exciting!
