Side Yard Lawn Idea
Lawn and flower bed planting ideas for a large side yard area
From this view you can see the side of the home, planting beds, and lawn area. In keeping with the rest of the landscape, we created a mass planting of a single row of Dwarf Nandina next to the home. Again, just one element repeated in the bed going down the side of the yard.
The pink plants in the background are Crape Myrtle. We used these to help hide the cinder block fence and to create a distinct separation between the front yard lawn area and backyard.
I know it's hard to see but there's a lesson in planting here. The Myrtles are planted in a group of three. There's also one more single on the other side yard of the garage. In planting, and in most situations, you'll find that odd number plantings are more appealing and balanced. Here we have a planting of three on one side and one on the other side of the garage. While it's four plants, it's still one planting of three and one planting of one.
