Over the weekend I replanted in the front of my house.
I replaced the tea trees with Indian Laurel Nitida and Boxwood. I got a screaming deal at Home Depot. 32$s each for the trees and 11$s each for the Boxwood.
I put up some little (ugly) signs to try to minimize the leg lifting that's bound to happen here, at least until everything is established.
I think this more formal planting style really dresses up the front of my house. I plan to square out the trees as they get bigger so that their tops only reach the green belly band on the house. I also will square off the boxwood once it grows together. And I will be watering more frequently!
I transplanted the still living tea trees to these planters up on my deck, where I hope they will be happier. I'll post about this over the next day or so.
Am I the only crazy one digging up plants and moving them around? Seems like a habit with me…
