We’ve managed this project for 3 years using all sustainable, low impact horticulture techniques. Though for instant effect, several full grown oaks were planted.
Plants with great foliage look like they are in flower. But leaf interest last much longer than flowers.
Initial soil preparation.
A 96 inch tree spade plants a mature live oak.
Though well kept in summer, the garden and plants are for winter and early spring.
Most trees are planted small so they’ll grow out nicely as has this 3 year old Black Gun.
