Last spring we had a 75 foot pine cut down and the root ground out. And that is where we stopped. So obviously this is the right time to plan to get some plants in and some curb appeal out there. Let's get to the plan.
The trees I decided on were the following (pictured from left clockwise):
Crape Myrtle (not really a tree but has a high profile)
Shrubs (from top left clockwise):
Perennials (pictured from top left clockwise):
Bluebeard (actually a shrub but low growing)
So we definitely need to take this challenge one step at a time. But the key is to get a plan written down, right?! First up - get our landscaping expert friend to take a look at our situation and let us know how much topsoil would be required. I am really looking forward to this transformation. I am also looking forward to Jeff Foxworthy no longer making fun of our yard.
