Hello everyone!

First post here and have loved goOmg through others projects And assistance that has been given!

We recently moved and our backyard was destroyed so we removed everything and added in some turf for our son to have some room to play. We have some planters now that are bare (with the exception of two vines my wife wanted) and would love some help/advice on what you think would go well/look good!

There’s 3 different areas that I’ll show.
1) Area with bender board near the turf we would like to do vines, shrubs and flowers. It receives direct sun for about 7-10 hours a day (far side less sun and near side more sun...that’s where the hour range comes from)

2) Enclosed planter area we would like to have some trees or bushes that provide some privacy since this is where the other homes are really able to see in. It receives sun for 90-95% of the day. We had a friend suggest Privets for that location. We would like it to look nice, trimmed and not disheveled but still have that privacy factor. We are even open to alternating trees and plants.

3) Smaller fence area. Receives sunlight 90-95% of the day. Our neighbor has jasmine vines so we’ve thought about some more vines and flowers here.

If you get your soil tested you can find which is the best plants to grow. If you have an acidic soil you can plant, RHODODENDRONS and AZALEAS flowering shrubs . If you have alkaline soil you would need a different type plants. Get a soil test from the local University Soil lab. All the areas you have to plant, I would go ahead and add compost and and start building the soil up for long term growing. Now is a good time for you to amend the soil.
