Hidden Gardens...graphic heavy
If you want to see the gardens at my home, you have to work at it. The front yard has a picket fence that hides what's inside, but in the back, I've built "natural" fences using trees, grasses, and shrubs to provide some privacy from the well-traveled road that runs along the back of the property.
Here's the drivers' views from the street. I've left one "window" open for those drivers who go slow enough to see it. Walkers-by stop for a closer look often. :)
Here's my "window" between the two river birch trees.
Of course, once you enter the driveway, everything appears!

Clever natural fence! Your yard is just beautiful and so well-kept. That board walk really adds a natural touch. Glad you shared it.
Nicely tucked away, I bet first-time visitors are surprised once they pass the "fence".
I love the way your home and garden are hidden until you reach the 'window'. I wouldn't be able to pass by when I saw what lay behind your natural fence. I love your garden and you'd probably find me standing open-mouthed drinking it all in.
What an interesting feature, PL. The garden is quite lovely. it's no wonder that p[edestrians often stop and admire.
That's absolutely beautiful and apart from the little 'window' you'd never know it was there. Thanks for giving us glimpses!
I love your front yard. I also like the bench along your walkway. Your garden is very pretty.
You obviously love to garden! Are those climbing roses on the arbor?
Thanks everyone! There is one climbing rose on the arbor, but I haven't been able to get the arbor covered due to our harsh winters & die back. I'm considering something else that may survive the cold better.
I love your place, Piano Lady . . . what a heavenly refuge that you have.
