landscaping ideas under big pine tree and for outside walkway are
I would like to get some recommendations on landscaping underneath a big pine tree. Would a cactus theme(succulent mostly) be possible or maybe leave it as is or maybe put bark to decorate? I know I can get some free mulch from a green waste location not too far from here in East Los Angeles. The soil underneath the pine is kind of hard and clay like. I heard pine needles are acidic. Also on the walkway area where oaks are, what can go there instead of just grass? This is like the Pasadena area in Southern California and would like any ideas that would be most cheapest and which would conserve the most water since considering the little rain we been getting, might go back to drought conservation in the future.(water restrictions that is) thank you and pictures are here if I found out how to attach them to post. well guess it should work thanks to the instructions of forum member donn.
