It detracts from the ugly chain link fence that goes between the properties.This corner was so sad when we moved into the house.
It was a depressing area of dirt and weeds.
Now it is alive with lush, flourishing plants.
5 years from now the area will probably be covered with this pretty lime green.
These hostas had lined our front walkway but did terribly last summer with the drought. Now they are super happy with a balance of sun and shade throughout the day.
We planted 2 holly back here too last fall which are equally content.
We are quite pleased with the result. We are going to leave it as is since these plantings will all get larger each year.
It also camouflages the telephone phone which is what you see in the back of the photo below. Our street was developed in 1900 and the utilities were put in the backyards of this street only. No one seems to know why although I suspect we live on what was once a city trolley road since it is much wider than all the other area streets.
This corner has come a long way since we transplanted the hostas! (a before photo below) The holly and the sedum were to tiny. The hostas were cut back as I read to do in order to move them properly. This did not effect their health at all. 😀
We have also applied grass seed which has made a huge difference in outlining the garden.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed our cozy hosta garden. ~Val
