I need help AGAIN!!!
I am in zone 8-9 Savannah GA, its hot and humid! I have a pretty big backyard and lots of ideas, but well, i am starting to burn out. I want to add trees for shade, but there are wires so any large tree would have to be close to my house. I am scared to do this. I see them do it all the time on landscaping shows, but something just doesn't seem right about it. Is there any that wont mess with my homes foundation? I also butt up to woods, and there are snakes, turtles and squirrels. I don't want to attract any of them over the fence.
I have 3 kids from 7-1, and 2 Pups, Both bulldog mixes so they will be big. What ever I do here has to hold up to kids, dogs and look good too. What would you suggest. i am thinking small tiny budget, slowly over time adding too this.Cannot afford to do a new fence as of yet, or new deck, but thinking about paint for now. Thanks all for putting up with me!
From the back corner of the yard. The deck, thinking about painting it. And also want to add a shade tree that wont blow over or drop a branch on the house killing us. What would you recommend? I want to add foundation planting that wont poison my dogs and kids too.
The other side, and the empty planted that help 4 dead rootballs. Dug them out and now what? My dog thinks hes a cat and sits in the window here. How can I keep them out of the planter to get something to grow here?
Can you see the dog path, should I use pavers for this? want to put a shade tree on each side of the add on, but am scared of dropping branches, and foundations. What would you recommend?
The woods are so pretty outside my fence. I want to make it look they just spill over into my yard. But I dunno how just yet!
