Hello! We recently fenced in our backyard and now have a well defined space to plant. We layed mulch yesterday and are trying to decide what to plant along the back.
We are in SW Virginia. The area gets lots of sun. We would like to discourage deer and mosquitos. I'm considering trees, bushes and plants. Want to make it colorful and interesting. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

I love planting trees and bushes that produce fruit/vegetables in an open space. Here's a picture of our citrus grove for inspiration. We have yellow grapefruits, oranges, and meyer lemons. Also, they make for great activity with kids for fruit picking.
