This is an area of the side of the house that was open & empty. Now holds an arbor with gate and beautiful potted plants that can bloom & fill the arbor. The ferns help provide beauty but also a deterrent to Brodhi who jumped the 3 foot fence one day with the right motivation. The ferns were not there then but now seem to keep him in.
This area serves as the dog run and they have access all day via the doggie door. Not bad. They are allowed into the rest of the yard when I can supervise.
