Issue 74
Side Yard Getaway

Free Printable Plan from Garden Gate

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.

Note: You need Adobe's FREE Acrobat® Reader installed on your computer to view the plan. If you don't already have Reader on your computer, click here to go to Adobe's Web site and get a FREE copy.
