We designed this backyard for a client in Skokie a few weeks ago. Mulching out a curved space along the fence, we planted a variety of flowers, shrubs and trees, including some evergreens. We gave them a variety of textures and colors, as well as plants that bloom in different seasons to provide year round interest to the space. With time and care, the space will continue to fill in as the shrubs continue to grow. As always, please feel free to leave any comments or questions in the comments below!
