Introduction: Create a Good Looking Garden
I bought this house recently but it didn't have much when it comes to plants, fence, protection, etc. So I am adding stuff. I started with this wall that faces a business (Private Tennis Business- They have 3-4 large courts)
I prepared the wall. I added the faux brick (cement) wall, good dirt, other things and I started planting my plants.
One of favourite plants are the Canna Lily Genus because they are beautiful, resistance to winter, comes in many varieties, etc. They are easy to take care also.
I also made a large planter infront of the house facing the street. I have planted as much as I could in this large planter made with decorative blocks.
I will add more as time permits. I have added another faux brick on the other side of the property that is facing a empty lot.
Step 1: More Plants
I added some full-size Cannas on the right side of the property. I used to have a similar variety in a house in Texas. I also put down some giant Hibiscus and in the back, in my workshop, I have some Orchids. I have also this flower I got from a local nursery but I don't remember what is it called. =)
Step 2: Add Small Trees and More Fences
I added more fences to protect the back of the property. Then I added more plants and I put down some trees. I also added more plants along the fences.
Step 3: Add a Greenhouse to Grow Vegetables
This is actually Step 4 but added too fast and now it won't let me change it. So I decided recently to add a greenhouse on the back corner of the property to grow my own vegetables. Here you can see the construction of the walls.
Step 4: Planter Addition, Front Gate and Side Metal Fences
Some after the side faux brick fences. I added a planter in front of the house, and raise the fence with some iron bar fence.
