I have two issues i need help on - the first is the most important. I have attached photos to minimize my message.
First, i need some border ideas to go around this island of 3 river birch. there is a gray boulder that sits in the middle. I would like to do some form of rock but smooth rock is difficult to match the boulder. it doesn't have to be rock so please throw all ideas at me!
Second, the boulder looks lonely but local nurseries tell me i shouldn't plant anything below the river birch. it will be too difficult to dig and will compete for water. Ideas?
Thanks in advance!!
