This wall is in a subdivision section consisting of narrow lots of Cottage Homes.  It helps soften the look  since there are small, close side yards but no backyards. This is the view out the side windows of this home.  A green space looks more inviting than a plain fence or wall.  Adding wall baskets or wall art totally changes the feeling of this outdoor room. We additionally used landscape lighting on this wall to enhance the evening view.
