HAVE: Alberta spruce, horse manure

Large Alberta Spruce shrub (Christmas tree shrub). It is probably 6 feet tall, I didn't know how to prune it so it got too big for its location in front of my house, and I want to put something else there.

I would love to trade for some bamboo, or good size weeping willow or ornamental grass (esp Maidengrass or perennial fountain grass) (No, these are not going where the Alberta spruce was!) I also need field stone or bricks for edging. If you don't want the shrub, I can trade horse manure.

I'm in northern VA outside of Warrenton.

I have a beautiful weeping cherry that weeps into a flowerbed and plants itself there. The weeping cherries you buy in nurseries are usually grafted. Mine has its natural form, more beautiful and graceful, I think.
