I took some time last month to measure out our front lawn and sketch up a to scale depiction of the garden space we're digging out right now (although somehow the actual garden looks like it won't fit all that stuff on the layout).
Can ya read all that scribble (Actually, if you click on the image it comes up crystal clear in a new window.) I'm going for shades of yellow, chartreuse, and orange, infused with a healthy dose of purple. I want mostly perennials and evergreens. The house is 'margarita green,' according to our lush neighbors, and the mailbox, house numbers, and planter are copper. The space gets strong afternoon sun (6-7 hrs), so I'm going for drought-tolerant plants. Any suggestions for the gap?
PS - Anybody visited the Amazon(d0t)com apparel shop yet?
