My new yard (yes, first house!!) backs up to a large wood retaining wall... the house behind ours is about 6 feet above, so the retaining wall holds its back yard. I imagine its been there forever... it is made of thick wood beams that are well worn.

I'm wondering if anyone has tips on what I can do to hide the wall, without compromising the little space I have in the yard. It is an urban yard, and I'd really love to make the most of it, considering not everyone is lucky enough to have the outside space!

I was hoping I could drill small planters into it with hanging plants...if not... maybe trellises?

The yard gets partial sun and no idea is too crazy! I LOVE COLOR.
