It didn't matter much at the lime, because Ilic lols to-lhc rear had no houses on them. . , . ' He planled a tree at lhc end of a .slonc ivnlk. This stone walk and n decree of adoption entered CAREY WOODBURN, Probate cierfc FLAPPER FANNY. By Sylvia Lack of knowledge of planis nud llicir possibiliUes resulted in Ihis )ioor. garden layout. No privacy here. lie called the axis. The tree is of the variety lhal is a bush grafted on a trunk; It will never grow nigh and, of course, will never give any shade over the scat. He thought he ought to have n rock garden because it was lhc hiriff to do, so ho brought in xmlders from the countiy am! >ut them on end, as nature nevei docs. Tlie rock garden is on the iroperly line so that tlicrc Is no pace left for planting shrubs as a background. He dug a bed for his flowers In the middle, part of his lawn. He lias created a garden all right, but what happens a few years hence? : A house is built on the lot to the rear. His rear line becomes his neighbor's side line. He sits on the bench near lib rock garden next to his neighbor's driveway and kitchen door. The second picture shows what another man did. He .bought small sticks of shrubs that would grow tall. He planted them around the rages of his property. In front of this shrub border lie planled his flowers. He kept (he center open Tor ; a lawn. He followed tlie principle of ?ood design by pulling a scat at the lerml,ius of the axis, and no l»th In the center. After a few years, the plants _rew high enough so as lo give Mm a screen, or green wall, of Irees and shrubs, and provide privacy. At Ihe time both these gardens were started, the area of land was the same and both spent the saine amount of money for plants. One knew what and where to plant trees nnd shmbs; the other didn't. • • » To avoid certain pitfalls when you start a garden, here arc some simple rules: ' ,';. If the area Is small (amiVthe smaller, the more-Important): 1. Plant high-growing shriibs and trees around the outline of the- space. Enclose your garden. Make a room out of It. 2. Never plant a single slirub or tree anywhere without having a reason for it. 3. Keep the lawn space unbroken by not planting flowers or trees In it. Grow flowers where Ihcy will get sun. 4. Do not try to have everything In your garden. You may produce room effect of Ihis model iirdcn lhan> It, iloes lo gel Iht poor mulls shown I tin. other pboln have a rock paiden a pool or a rose tad, but don't try to have them all, 5.
