The color, height, and shape variations of native plants are endless! This makes them very useful for designing beautiful privacy screens, visual “skirting” for decks and porches, or using tall, colorful plants to make a living and flowering fence around perched decks and patios.
The deck in this area was canted out over a section of the yard, giving those enjoying the deck a slightly elevated view of the space around it. Shoreview Natives helped the homeowners utilize native plants to accentuate the elevation. Tall flowers were used to provide privacy and surround the deck space, colorful plants placed for maximum visibility from both deck and house windows, and short species were planted appropriately to maintain sight lines out over other gardens. The result was a space where you are surrounded by a gardens on three sides - with all of the sights, smells, and amazing creatures that come with them!
