We started to plant a few trees now that the deck is just about sorted. The front entrance will feature a mini-grove of arbutus marina trees (strawberry tree).. The evergreens have a nice red bark that will tie in nicely with the fence… drought tolerant and requires little maintenance too (a must-have!). We planted desert museums in the courtyard and north end of the yard… we started with 15 gallons to keep cost down … a little patience is required for these trees to grow. Live in Phoenix? I see ‘em listed on craigslist for free(!).
