In Garden Gate issue 74, we shared lots of tips about designing that narrow strip of ground between the side of a house and a tall privacy fence. In this Online extra we’ve taken one of the illustrated landscapes you saw there and given you a planting plan. The garden even includes an arbor where you can sit and relax. If you’d like to build it, you’ll find plans for this Weekend Arbor with a built-in bench are available at PlansNOW.
With lots of herbs and perennials and a few fruit trees, you can turn your narrow space into a relaxing oasis.
