Front of house and side yard. Note the lack of landscaping. David and I have not come to any agreements on what to do with the yard. We have a tiny backyard that we don't use whatsoever and it isn't likely we will use it anytime soon until we have the money to install a door off the kitchen and a small deck. So I would like to do something with the side yard. The big green slab just isn't doing it for me. Unfortunately the phone lines above don't really leave me many tree options. I have been thinking an island of some sort lined up next to the front of the neighbors fence with a small tree or bush and some flowers. Also perhaps a trellace of some sort for some side yard privacy. Bold you said you're here to help so start sending ideas my way!
