A medium sized suburban backyard surrounded by invasive bamboo and a crappy old wood fence. We just moved in and it is time for a fix up! A large screened porch and shady deck divide the yard. We have part sun, part shade. We also have groundhogs, rabbits, deer, and foxes!

Back Yard Fun for Kids Garden General Garden I Need Ideas! Help! Medium (1,000 - 5,000 sq ft.)

1 of 21: BEFORE: Some flowers coming up this spring - I'm excited to see what is in there!

2 of 21: BEFORE: These tulips are cute, but do a poor job of hiding the big green sewage pump in the flower bed...Maybe an evergreen would work a little better...

3 of 21: BEFORE: these ferns should be good (at least for now)
