Garden Help

Janice/Mom –

Here is all I know/want/need for our new “garden”.

The deck is 22’2′ x 21’0′.  Here are pictures from all sides.

Looking out from the sunroom:

To the right (when looking out from the sunroom):

To the left (when looking out from the sunroom):

Looking back towards the sunroom:

As you can see, the furniture we have is a 6 person table and a lounge set.

This is what the lounge set will look like with all of the cushions and umbrella.

In addition to that furniture we will be adding a grill and possibly an umbrella for the table.  We would like the grill towards the back (so the grill smell doesn’t overwhelming drift into our neighbor’s apartments).  I would also like to string these lights from the sunroom over the entire deck to the brick wall and back so we have light out there at nighttime.

Here are a few pots/planters that will be good to start out with (left by the previous owner).  The water source is next to the sunroom (so right off the condo) – FYI.

 

On my request list would be:

  • An herb garden (I already have a basil plant and a lavender plant – thanks Ash!  Would love mint, cilantro, sage and rosemary).
  • Bamboo
  • Ranunculus

I’m thinking no to any water feature.  I can see it getting dirty and I hate when things are dirty . . . especially when I have no time to clean them.

Oh, and you asked about Chet’s requirements.  He will be too busy trying to figure out what this furry non-dog creature is to care about what is going on back there.

Mom has the budget.  Good luck! Can’t wait to see what you come up with. 🙂
