Add Privacy with Plantings

While Susan had no plan at the start, one did emerge, though she never formalized it. She had two key goals: in the front, to screen out the view of the street from the kitchen and dining room windows, as well as the sunny spot directly outside where she had a table and chairs; in back, to block views of neighboring houses completely so that the yard would be a private retreat.

Shown: An old outhouse, bought at a fair flea market, serves as both a storage shed and a decorative object in the yard.
