You can create your garden getaway with a few simple items and plants.
You will want to find a secluded spot in your yard maybe toward the back or near a corner. Using shrubbery, you can create your own secret garden by growing living walls.
You can create your living wall using a variety of Azaleas, Blackhaw Viburnum, or Rose of Sharon. These shrubs—if allowed to grow can easily create a dense wall for your garden.
You will want to fill your chosen space with ground cover and flowers, perhaps even a small tree. Ground cover will give your garden a lush look and flowers can add that pop of color.
Add a garden bench or a couple of chairs. You can even add a small birdbath or fountain to your secret spot.
“Carolina Cherry, boxleaf privet and fortinia provide great shrubbery. We offer installation of all of our products at the nursery,” Matt Huey of Sunset Nursery said.
