Good morning, everyone!
Within the next few weeks, I will be pulling out several large evergreen shrubs and replacing them with a Japanese maple (either Red Dragon or Weeping Viridis.) It will be planted at the corner of my house and I would like to create a slightly raised bed to plant it in. The bed will be raised no more than 12-18" and probably will be roughly 3-4' in diameter.
I'm wondering if the tree would be able to thrive in a raised bed. The bed's border would be stone and there would be no bottom preventing the roots from growing down.
This will be my first time planting a tree and I know that Japanese maples are on the delicate side. I want to make certain I won't be messing things up right from the start.
