Q: I'm hoping some of your readers can help a girl out with sprucing up her outdoor space. I love the yards and gardens that have been featured so far, but I've noticed that none of them feature the lovely cinder block walls that are so pervasive in newer homes…
...We plan to use a wire trellis system in areas where vines can be planted, but do you have any suggestions on how to disguise or pretty up a cinder block wall where there is no access to garden dirt (like around a patio area)? We researched painting the grey a lighter color, but it would reflect too much heat and cook the rest of the yard, so we are at a loss. Help!
