Bare Bones Patio - Spruce me Up!

Hi! I am a new homeowner. I am very excited to have a small backyard and sitting area to entertain. I am excited summer is finally here and wanted to "create a space". My friend (who is a huge Do-It-Yourself person) designed and and helped me build the privacy/trellis fence (which was a great D-I-Y budget friendly project and I hope to paint it.) I also recently purchased the table and chair set. As you can see, the space is looking a little boring and I do not have any greenery yet. I was hoping to grow some vines/flowers through the the privacy fence, a hanging basket or two and maybe a few pretty planters. Either way, I would love to have some gardening design tips and beautiful flowers/plants from Nanticoke Gardens to spruce it up! Winning this contest would be perfect!

Patio: 11 ft x 11 ft
Privacy fence: 7 ft high, 8 ft wide

Sun rises in the backyard, so there is lots of sun, shady by late afternoon. I took the pictures around 5pm.

I think it is great that you are using a local greenhouse, it is great that they were willing to participate! Thanks for having the contest!
