Create a magical outdoor escape that’ll take you from summer to fall and beyond. Start by draping a variety of outdoor string lights and lanterns above your yard or patio, adding LED and citronella candles throughout so the whole space feels warm and inviting (and keeps bugs away!) Tie it all together with an outdoor rug and pillows, and your favorite patio set.
The rear of the property now has a 2 foot high retaining wall, which allowed us to regrade the backyard to a clean, flat surface. By adding the cedar fence on top of the retaining wall, we were able to effectively build a 7 foot barrier on the rear of the property, adding even more privacy.
Rocky Mountain Penstemon (Penstemon strictus)--Loads of spring blooms-late summer, purple-blue flowers, do well in rocky or extremely dry soils, hummingbirds love, will not thrive during the wet, full to partial sun, zones 3-9, 8in-6ft tall, great for containers, privacy, slopes, great cut flowers, attracts butterflies (would probably do well for privacy at front landscaping)
