Originally we had a chain link fence between the house and the shed! Then, when our obnoxious neighbors behavior forced us to put up another fence that stretches the length of our home front to back, Earl and I took down the chain link fence and turned the little area that was grass, into another little garden area! We also used the chain link pieces to close off the house to the new wooden fence and that makes sure that Rufio stays in the back yard. We put in the red scalloped concrete edging, the wood chips and plants and I found this sweet cherub on discount......could not resist!!!!!
It makes the patio look bigger and I always like pretties in the yard! :) I put some clematis against the fence and some ground cover that will flower blue and some other flowering plants too! I sure hope they all survive! They were all on sale from Stein's. A good price, sometimes mean they do not make it......too close to the end of the season, but fingers are crossed! I love the new area! Ahhhhhhhhh!

oh I love your new fence and landscaping! Your little cherub is just darling also! We need seriously landscaping at our new place - but hubby tore the meniscus in his knee and we are waiting on his surgery - all projects came to a halt! Hopefully next spring! Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! :)

Hi Patti! It is beautiful back there! The fence should do the trick!!!! You will really enjoy this space and I am hoping with you that the plants all survive. I have a brown thumb so usually ---I lose mine.
