Here are a few photos (iPhone only again, I'm sorry) from what the garden looks like now. I has some trees, brown grass, some piles of garden waste and a few bushes. It also have potential.

The three solitaires on the lawn are the two palms from this post and the banana plant. I also want to fill in the hedge a bit with lower but denser bushes to give the garden more privacy. On the right side of the house I plan to add a small kitchen garden and along the front of the house under the porch I want to have some flowering bushes. On the left side I want to add something that shields the backside a bit so I can hang out there in my bikini.
