One the best things I did this year was hide my vegetable garden. It's still located in the same place and you can still see it but it's not as noticeable when your sitting by the pool.
There's nothing wrong with seeing a vegetable garden while you're swimming. The problem is that when you can see the garden, you can see that it needs some weeding. And who wants to think about weeding when your goofing off with your kids in the pool.
Someday, I'd like to surround the garden with a nice custom made wood trellis fence and have tons of vegetables and flowers growing up it. And while I'm dreaming, how about a great looking arbor that you have to walk under to get in the garden. That would be awesome. For now though, I'll have to settle for a few ornamental grasses, a butterfly bush, some petunias and a musa basjoo. And really, they aren't too bad at all.
