Hello everyone, hope all is enjoying the nice spring so far. I just put a fence around my little patio and want to make it a great space like what I see in magazines. I want to make sure I am planting good plants that are not invasive and are NC native "my neighbor yelled at me when I mentioned bambo". I would like to add some evergreen shrubs that add privacy "there are gaps in the fence". I also would like to have some fragrent flowers, maybe roses, and a veggie garden. My patio gets sun all day, so I can't use shade or part shade plants. Thanks everyone.
