Landscaping ideas around the city

I tend to see courtyards and landscapes while driving. I inherited it from my father. About 10 miles from our home, we visit our grandparents on Sunday. As Father turned to look at the crop on the other side of the aisle, my mother often said, “Willis, look at the road.” My daughter took that role for me.

If you are looking for something new to add to your backyard or perhaps to plant next spring, it might be a good time to look at the landscape while walking or while someone else is driving.

I was thrilled to see the use of sweet potato grapes at the entrance to the SMM Health Doctor building. In the past, Lyriop had large stones around them and they still exist. The addition of Chartreys and dark green ornamental sweet potato grapes added a colorful touch to the entrance that lasted until the frost. It is difficult to find enough space in the landscape for this plant. Many years ago we used them in large pots on Bell Street and soon they were growing up on the street and advising people to pick up pieces. If you find it difficult to cut them frequently, next spring will be a colorful addition to your backyard or balcony, especially if you plant them in the backyard.
