I'm pretty new to gardening. We built our house almost 1 1/2 years ago. Anyhow, We went from just a couple bushes to what you see below. I just finished the retaining wall/edging a few weeks back. Some of our plants are starting to pop through. We still have a lot of large hostas that are just starting to pop though.
Anyhow, I'm wanting to know what you guys think about trees around houses. I don't want mine completely flush with the house, just in front to add depth and for a little privacy from the street.
Was thinking of doing something like this:
What do you think of the trees? Should I do anything else? The hostas or other plants aren't up just yet, but they are working on it. Both my wife and I love siting on our front porch watching the flowers and wildlife. We thought adding a few trees in the front would give it a little more punch especially in the spring when they flower.
Thanks for looking... all ideas welcome
