design ideas

ok i have a lot on my mind this weekend and im blanking out


i have a design project i need to have by monday

it is a smaller area

area 20x25

back property line is open, i want to do a privacy wall (living)

the front border is a nice above ground pool with deck facing landscape

then enclosed with a little patio off garage on one side and fence on other

bed in middle is a 3 foot raised bed with stone wall 18x12

first the wall, first i was thinking emeralds or taxis , but the more i think about it thats just me being lazy

its a relaxing environment so i want to go with blue, purple and deep reds

i want to give it a rainforest type aquatic look

i know what im thinking i want but its stuck in my head, if you know what i mean

i know i want variegated hostas , but im having trouble on what to put with it

im sure ill figure out something, but some ideas would be helpful

What you want is an outdoor living space, ala., P. Allen Smith. Frame with Boxwoods, cover with a flowering tree or arbor and place a bench and a pot, to sit down on.
