Chris finally found his Dawn Redwoods and was able to complete our whole border! It looks even better than I imagined it could. There are 5 Little Gem Magnolias, 3 Dawn Redwoods and 2 Nellie Stevens Holly Trees (can't see them in this pic). The shrubs are planted in twos, and are labeled in the above picture, except for the ones on the very back end....I think they are Viburnum... If you're counting, we're at 10 trees and 10 shrubs in that border! And he dug all those holes and spread 46 bags of mulch with his own hands!
I'm so glad that he loves to work in the yard! It is turning out so beautifully, and I know we will love and appreciate it even more because of all the research and work he put into it!
He'll be mowing the grass all summer long, but I think we will be waiting to plant the other side of the yard until fall when the landscaping will be all done next door at the house currently under construction.
Yay for Trees! And....Happy Earth Day this week! Don't forget the 3 Rs!
