We just purchased a new home Ã¢â‚¬â€œ well we got married, bought a house and have a baby on the way Ã¢â‚¬â€œ all within 5 months, so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been a busy time. Anyway, it sits on a very large lot and we have two large stands of birch/maple trees in our front yard. One stand is about 30 x 40 ft and the other is about 40 x 60 ft. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re working on clearing the smaller stand Ã¢â‚¬â€œ clearing the rocks, dead branches, pulling stumps, tilling the earth, etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Both of us are fairly new to this gardening business, so I was wondering if anybody had any grand ideas about what could be done on the small stand Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it has about 8 trees in it. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to bring in soil but both of us seem to have a creative block when it comes to the next step. I had thought of scattering flower bulbs and seeds all willy-nilly but I think it would look pretty cluttered.
Does anyone have any examples of what could be done in a space like this? We live in Zone 5.
