planting around a tree
I have a mature tree off by itself at the far end of a large lawn. At present it has grass growing around it. I would like to dress it up a bit, but dont want to create a maintanace headache. I was thinking of creating a circular bed with a ground cover like lamium or goutweed or some other tough plant. Its too far from the house to drag a waterhose so need some tough plants.I thought maybe add a large rock or some type of ornament. We are on the farm and everyone drives past this tree as it is beside the driveway.I would really appreciate some creative ideas. pictures would be great. Ideas anyone?
