Thanks for following up. My question is related to garden designing, but I am not sure who would be right person to whom I should direct the question.

Juan, is this a landscaping garden, vegitable garden, or a combination of the two.
Can you provide me with a basic plot plan of the property?
Is the property basically flat or are there different elevations that need to be taken into consideration?
Hello Smitty, thanks for taking my "case" :)
Here are some answers:
1- I would prefer to have a combination garden, probably 60-70% landscape and 20-30% Vegitable
2- the backyard is flat , no trees, nothing..just grass, but there is a concrete extension that could be used if it helps
3- I have attached a google view from the backyard, but I don't know if you'll be able to see it. The basic area would be 60 feet long (East), and maybe 15-20 feet wide North/South.
Not a whole lot of space, and perhaps that triggered the question, since I will need to play "wisely".
*We have two little ones (so we would like to avoid thorns)
*I like palms
*I would like to have a little pond, maybe put it on in the concrete? (Which is a good place?)
*We live in Houston = A lot of sun light, very hot most of the year, a bit humid
Juan, the picture came out too blurry to see anything. Can you just post the link to the google image.
I took a couple of pictures of the backyard. We bought the house and want to fix the backyard. There are not trees or plants of any type, only grass and a cement platform. In the middle of the platform, there is a square. The previous owner told us there was a tree in there...
Hope this helps :)
