I guess bamboo wont work up there? Looks like a board fence or hedges or maybe wroughtiron and roses.

ETA, I thought about blueberries but in AK it might attract big varmints.

Nice place.

You are doing well to develop your vision of what you want to achieve. Options for each area include privacy, curb appeal, low maintenance, security, parking space, etc.

I'd say the basics might include a paved driveway and a planting plan that will "soften" the transition from yard to house by using low shrubs near the structure.

I think a low front wall or fence plus gate would define your space.

There are some books and software programs that can help.

You need some more foxholes around the perimeter and a searchlight at ridge of your roof.

Maybe even a few mounted coaxil machine guns.

Don't plant landscaping bushes that have to be trimmed - that is the one job I hate and avoid.

Try to set up perimeters that make mowing as trim free as possible, you want to just blow right through with the mower.

This is the extent of my GREEN thumb.
