ABSTRACT
The article presents part 2 of the series about landscape design. It describes the experience of Charlotte and her husband, Ted who bought a property on the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona. The couple hired a landscape architect to design some protected spaces in the garden to prevent rabbits from eating the plants. The landscape architect proposed to install a garden wall to prevent wildlife from entering the area, provide for soil retention and create a level lawn.
