I have a fountain almost like this. I am putting an old picket fence gate behind it to make a
background, I will plant some lovely vine on it , Possibly, a clematis. They are so pretty and don't have too many places to put them.. I have a lovely white clematis planted by my husbands grandfathers plantation bell in the front yard. It makes such a lovely combination . I get lots of comments.
So...Back in April I bought and transplanted seven hydrangea bushes (sticks) from a backyard gardener who lives not too far from me. She did a good job of digging up the roots and keeping
the native soil around the roots. The bushes already had leaves on the sticks when we did the transplant. Since planting them in my yard (tilled and amended the soil with gardening soil and mushroom compost) all the leaves have dried up and fallen off and I have seven, tall, gangly, bare sticks in my yard. They look pretty dead to me. Is there a possibility that they could make a come back? I shouldn't do any trimming right now, right? I'll try to post pictures later.
I recently used Wet & Forget on some wood siding and haven't seen results, yet. I sprayed it on the house about a month ago and wanted to see if I should give it more time or do a second spraying. Thanks for your help. BTW, based on everyone's response I wanted to post before & after pics either here or on my sight (www.homerepairtutor.com).

i used it and I still have mildew everywhere. The color changed to grey, but the mildew did
not go away. I sprayed it on with a pump sprayer and the drift killed the grass under where I was spraying. I am still waiting to see what is going to happen. I am afraid you will not be able to wet and forget. It needs some elbow grease, a brush, and some water to rid the mildew. Wet and forget is not the way it works.
I want to replace the bird bath in the middle of the deck because it is between a waterfall and a koi pond so I don't really use it, nor do the birds. I would like a colorful plant that can take full sun - there is no shade in that area. The planting area is 3' in diameter.

I saw a bird bath with sedum that fell over the edge. Also, use different sedums. I guess
