The property in SJC is a haven of privacy. The yards are enveloped in walls of greenery that have been there for many years and completely conceal the actual fence that surrounds the property. Until now. All along the back fence are oleanders that were so thick you couldn't see through them. Because all of the oleanders in our area are dying from oleander scorch, the wall is also dying out and revealing what lies behind it. In this case it is our neighbors' properties and horses. We have been working diligently to replant the wall with species that are thick and quick growing, but only time will give us the privacy that made this area so special.
