Since the garage was in their backyard, they also had to figure out the best way to maintain privacy without limiting the number of windows in the unit. José and his wife have a bit of a green thumb and found an excellent solution. They incorporated a succulent wall that sits just outside of the bedroom window, so when their tenant opens her blinds, she’s greeted by stunning greenery while the family can still enjoy their backyard.
