Love this! Our neighbors on each side have ugly chain link fencing. I'm spending the day planting beans and sunflowers all along the fence line. In a month we'll have shade, privacy and good things to eat :)
Great post! If possible I'd also love to see some posts on garden design.
Sculpture gardens post please! We just bought our first house. I have a black thumb and some outdoor space. There is a patio with an ivy wall on one side and two sides have a strip of dirt for planting. I think we might just make some sort of sculpture garden on the strips so don't have to feel badly about killing things, and it helps conserve water.
What a fantastic resource - bookmarked. Thank you!!
I want the red table in the first pic please!
I've started decorating my previously avoided, very long and narrow balcony (17' x 3') for the first time in two years, because I am determined to have a summer night dinner party on it! I'd love to see more outdoor posts tailored to tiny or, specifically, narrow balconies. I've exhausted the AT archives, but you can almost count the balcony posts from the past 5yrs on 2 hands! MOAR please. There are plenty of patio/deck/yard/garden posts, but a lot of us apartment dwellers share the dreaded tiny balcony, and we need some help too!Thanks!
postagenotes: I think the best you can do is to use the walls, rail, and ceiling of the balcony as much as possible. Maybe get a few small bar tables for folks to stand at, because I don't think there's going to be a lot of room for seating.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
