Looking for ideas for my backyard - Marietta, GA
We recently moved from Chicago to Marietta, GA. We are thrilled that we have got a bigger yard. Yes we did cut down about 40 trees, to make the yard we have. I got a very good deal on cutting down huge pine and sweet gum trees. Now we have the yard, my landscape guy is saying, we need to put 20 trucks of dirt, to level it up. Any way that apart, here are some pics of it.
From times I remember, I am very passionate about growing my own food, we couldn't do that in Chicago, because of the short growing season we have. I am looking to make a decent grass area in the backyard and planning on having areas for growing vegetables, berries and fruits. I also thought of a green house (it would be awesome to grow pappaya, guava, sapota and citrus fruits).
Any pointers on where we should plant Apple, Pomegrante,Peach, Pear, Blue berry, Raspberry, Strawberry plants. Attached are a couple of pics. I was thinking I have them on the perimeter.
Also where to get these plant? Thanks for your time
