Natives for strategic locations in the yard
Tick tock. Running out of time this season to choose some bushes and trees to at least get a start in creating my ideal of natives in the yard.
So far, I have prioritized three locations; removing some pink flowering bush/tree in the front corner of the property on the South side; a bush on the tallish side to hide the side of the bulkhead from the side, also South side; and, a tree or some bushes to replace a rotted gate/fence and give some privacy from the street of the deck which is raised three feet on the west side.
If they were fragrant it would be even more special. Trying to bring some color a ittle at a time and attract butterflies. The landscaper is into te standards; dogwood (love it), mountain laurel )ditto), PJ rhodies (been there, done that),rose of sharon (seems every house around us has one. I want to steer away from green plants only. I am trying to replace what I have.
Any ideas would greatly help!
