Back Yard

Looking out our front door, the back (East) and left (South) sides of our house are both pushed as far as possible against the property line so as to maximize the front (West) and right (North) views of the golf course. (See the plat.)

So technically, we do not have a "back yard", but our right side yard is what we call the back yard.
It is a large, tree-filled, sloping area, covered with mulch -- no grass nor gravel.

Links in the picture above:
Crape Myrtle
Silver Blue Var. Hydrangea
Red Prince Weigela
Nordic Compact Inkberry
Crape Myrtle
French Mulberry
Gardenias (died)
Densiformis Yews

The Gardenias which died were preceded by Hostas which also did poorly. We suspect that they were getting too much water.
The Yews and Pyracantha (right edge of picture) were planted to screen off the underside of the deck from below.
