Adding Trees to the Landscape
Trees can be labor-intensive when leaves fall in the winter, and many grow so large that pruning can be complicated. However, if you want a tree or two in the yard, some are manageable and not overly messy.
Some trees to consider are the following:
- Dwarf Spruce
- Fruitless Pear
- Crape Myrtle
- "Little Volunteer" Tulip Tree
It is always best to create a barrier around the base of trees to protect the trunk from being damaged by lawn equipment. A perimeter of about 2 feet with stones and filled with mulch is also quite attractive.
There are many options for a low maintenance landscape. Rock gardens are another possibility. To find out about the different landscaping options available in the Boise, Idaho area, contact us today at Premier Tree & Landscape LLC.
