I got 2 japanese maples that I have in pots. They got some wind damage I want to put them in my small yard to hide a neighbors garage, (which is 6" from my property line) without losing any of my full sun flower beds.
I was thinking of planting them a foot or so from said building, removing any branches growing back towards that building. I don't plan on training the remaining branches, and my hope is that from my 2nd floor deck, where I enjoy the labors of my and my other neighbors flower garden, the trees would look like normal fully rounded trees.
Has any one ever done, or heard of anyone doing this?
Any opinions or tips would be greatly appreciated.
