Name: Lydia

Location: Evanston, Illinois

Type of space: Backyard

Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: We started working on our outdoor space five years ago. Our problem was to create a private space without putting up a huge fence. We built trellis', grew climber plants on them and now we have a green fence! It's private but green and lush.

How did you create it?:
We took up the concrete sidewalk and added a flagstone curved path to match the existing patio. Also, we planted plants native to the area and kept our fingers crossed.

Recommended store, site, product or resource?
For new larger trees, we decided to hit nurseries. For all other plants, we purchased plants at Lowe's, Home Depot. We have been lucky so far!
