The Front Yard pool has been warmly received by our Florida neighbors. We don't have to use our names, we just introduce ourselves to new people as the ones with the front yard pool. Everyone knows it. Skeptics appear to be accepting of it and admit it is barely seen from the street now that we have the plantings in and the hibiscus hedge has grown. You can see from the photo below taken in April that there is a hedge planted along the front which is now a foot taller. We've planted palms and ginger out front which should fill in the gaps and grow fast once the rains start. The brick path is lined with plants and to the right I have planted drought tolerant Bromeliads and Crotons. We've a mix of huge oak trees, mixed with many palms such as pony tail palms, travellers palms, fan palms, date and foxtail palms, as well as some herbs, succulents, aloe and other desert plants. One side looks like Northern Ontario and the other looks like the tropics. We watched a nest of cardinals and I caught this photo of the one remaining chick. I think in a year, no one will even know there's a pool back there.
