Here's the area we want to revamp. The cornerstone plant will replace our crazy banana tree.
I actually don't mind the banana tree, even if the banana pods are a little funky-looking, but it gets so ratty in the winter (looks completely dead with the first hint of frost), and it attracts way too many bees. My four-year-old will miss it, but this is my domain-- the grown-up patio.
