Q: Our dining room has French Doors opening onto the side of the house, which is closed off on both sides. Half of the enclosure is a cement block wall and half is redwood fencing. We'd like to have something pleasant to look at while we're eating...
I've got a few thoughts, like painting the cement wall a fun color, hanging a mirror on the fence, or putting a high table with boxes of succulents that wouldn't have to be watered much, but could use some help visualizing the possibilities. It's possible to access the side yard to water or trim plants, but not very convenient, so it probably shouldn't be too plant-intensive.
