Hi all, We just had a 50' hemlock tree removed from behind our house. We hated to see it go, but it was WAY too close to the house. So.....this has opened up a 30 X 40 foot area to be landscaped. I think I want to remove the numerous saplings and plant with woodland bushes: deciduous azaleas, ??? Maybe some ferns, hakonechloa grass. Who knows? Here are some pix of the area. I know I'll have to improve the soil. Come spring, I'll start dumping coffee grounds & compost on the area.
