The fence by the rhubarb is a horrible affair: made from pallets and chipboard, it’s painted an uninspiring brown. It is right by a busy pathway and since I’ve been warned a couple of times, I feel the need to make a good effort on the side that’s most visible.
Currently got a 10′ x 3′ area under mulch. Chopped down all the fireweed, grass and brambles and then put leafmould on the top.
- preferably not thorny
- offers some screening but not too dense … I want to add a bit of mystery but not block the already-diminished light.
- not too thirsty
- not going to fire seed into my neighbours’ plots
- nice to help out pollinators
Could be a decorative grass; could be something productive.
