Over many years this backyard had been battered by intense sun.  The dead wood and overgrown vines had choked out all the plant life, shrubs and flowers long ago.  A slow process to revitalize the soil began soon after surveying the property and, within a year, new flowering shrubs were planted.  A flower bed was nestled at the base of an angled elm, and a rustic cedar slab fence added around the perimeter completes this now beautiful garden space.
