Re: update on garden/bottle brush


Design is one of my least favorite subjuects, so I'm not very good at
explaining myself, or even at making good suggestions.  You seemed to
indicate that you didn't want one long path, so I thought a sequence of 3
square rooms might be nice.  Tall, but not rounded shrubs to the outside
south would cast some immediate shade beneath.  Each room could use varying
heights and types of perennials. Entrance/Exit for each room would not be
centered so the next room would not be immediately evident or at least not
yet displayed.

My similar problem was only 10 x 45 and HAD to be used for traffic front to
back.  Rooms wouldn't work for me because 10 ft didn't allow enough width
and the constant back and forth, as much as 50 times a day, would be a royal
pain in what I've described as rooms.  But you seemed to indicate this is an
area you don't use and mainly just want to screen, so movement isn't a
priority.  For me, this is where I built my 4 ft wide raised timber walk
with a 3 ft bed to each side.
