Awkward space between fence and sidewalk? 🪴 Landscape Design Problem SOLVED

A common landscape design problem SOLVED: How to landscape an awkward space between a fence and a sidewalk.
Do you have a long skinny area between your sidewalk and your fence? Similar to parking strip or hellstrip gardening, this long skinny bed presents a unique challenge… It’s surprisingly shady most of the year, yet hot and dry due to reflective heat from the street and sidewal. In this video I demonstrate landscape design ideas for this narrow planting area along a sidewalk, fence, and road.
