Front East Edge

The East edge of the lot is a wide irregular line of trees and shrubs with some perennials added.  The front portion runs from the street to the front of the house.  About half of it is on the east neighbor’s property.  Since the neighbor’s front yard is mostly sunny lawn, there’s a lot of morning light here and some afternoon light too.


Plants in table are listed from street (South) to house (North) facing East.
