The 'easy' fix would be a trellis or something around the tank but that leads to more trimming and difficulty with the mower getting into tight spaces. Anything planted up close will soon hang over the driveway. All my plans have to take into account that farm equipment has to move in and out through some of these broad spaces. Nothing is planted around the equipment barn. It stands alone.
Now, who will dig the holes?
Native wildflower but a thug. It provides some really nice color early on.
When it gets tall and weedy and other plants are coming into bloom, I cut it
to the ground. Spiderwort, Tradescantia virginiana. Notice its companions
are wild geranium and chickweed. Hot sun will take them out soon if
I don't get to it. Pulling as many weeds as I can, I leave Henbit because I
see butterflies nectaring on every little bloom of Lamium amplexicaule.
Native to California, a lovely Poppy for a Georgia garden.
Eschscholzia californica with its gold cups are a favorite of mine.
They seed about everywhere. Some years I collect seed before the
long slender pods 'pop' so I can better place them. These poppies
last well into the summer, unlike the others.
Little vignettes of ginger jars and Daffodils. I bring out these jars some
years when daffodil blooms are sparse, to draw the eye. They will
disappear after Easter when Poppies and Larkspurs start to bloom and
trees and shrubs leaf out.
