Last September, I posted about my favorite privacy trees – Frons Fontaine Hornbeams. To this day it is one of my most visited posts – partly because a lot of people Google “best privacy trees” and my blog comes up on the second page. I guess it is true that good –well thought out titles on your blog posts can boost your readership. I doubt “Our Backyard Progress Report” will do much for my blogs’ popularity, but – oh well. This is what we have been up to at our house.
This weekend we planted 13 trees along our back fence in order to create a privacy screen and last month we installed the picket fence towards the back of our yard. The fence created a new dog run for Scout and Moose. Even though our dogs are really well behaved Labradoodles, they still reek havoc on the yard. So they will hang out back there when we are not playing with them or hanging out inside together.
This photo was taken while we were still planting the trees. We hope one day it will look something like this:
Wish us luck!
