I have a private space in my yard. I don't know about you but when someone says private space in their yard, I think retreat and jacuzzi. This isn't a retreat; it's a section of my garden/yard that I prefer folks not see. It's right off my patio, so it is quite visible from the kitchen and the den. I have been pretending that no one can see it!
Here it is.
A few years ago it was a pleasant spot, not perfect but pleasant with structure and form. But after contractors put in the new patio and dug ditches for french drains there was destruction everywhere. A beautiful 20 year old Japanese Maple and all the Coral Bell Azaleas died. I was heartbroken, I loved that Japanese Maple.
It became easier to just shut the metaphorical door on the junk room then jump into a new project. I have ignored it for far too long. I am putting myself on notice...that it is time to address this mess. Not sure yet what I will do, but something will come to me.
But now I am wondering if you all have spaces in your gardens and yards that are less then ready for prime time viewing?
