CHANGES AND CHALLENGES
When I moved in, the house was surrounded by a 5 foot tall chain link fence. I knew that I wanted to change the entrance to the house which meant changing the fence too. I didn't originally plan on changing the whole fence immediately but when they approved my first addition the city asked that I change most of the fence.
I opted for a low and open fence that let maximum sunlight through for my garden.
The garden is constantly changing due to my challenges with gophers and surrounding trees. After my futile battles with the gophers I am learning which plants they don't like and how we can share the garden. I have searched for and found lists of "gopher resistant plants" but have found that my gophers don't read or observe those lists. Through trial and error I have found plants that work.
