Tree Pictures

October 17th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

I did take a few pictures of our new trees. They were half off of $150, so $75 each. We planted them ourselves, which we got done in less than two hours, including clean up.

After you are done browsing the trees, check out my post from earlier today. I have coupon link there!

Celebration Maple

White King Hawthorn, we planted two of these, which is shown in the first picture above. That extra sod will likely be tossed out with the yard waste, since we don't have any open spots to replant it!

    Beautiful! I hope they grow big quickly for you!

    Your neighborhood is lovely. It seems odd to me that the yards are not separated by fences, but I know that is the norm in a lot of places. Smile

    Thank you, Petunia. It is a very new area. There is still a house being built across the street from us. I don't think fences are the first on many people's list with a new home. We personally won't fence because of the cost. Luckily, we have nice neighbor and no roaming dogs.

    Very lovely trees!

    So pretty! And all that GRASS! I'm jealous!

    Here all subdivisions are built with fences. Usually wooden, but sometimes you see cinderblock.

    @Buendia, I'm in love with GREEN grass, too. Last year at this time we had dead sod in the back yard, which is how it was when we moved in. The new sod when in late November, so by spring it was really nice. We even let it go dormant this summer to keep the water bill a little lower.

    @Petunia, it is interesting to hear how things are in other parts of the country.

    Lovely trees - especially love the evidence of Fall. Smile

    Pretty photos and pretty trees. But i was surprised about the lack of fencing too.

    We've built in a new sub-division twice and it's one of the things everyone does first - keeps the kids and dogs in and if you're first means you get to pick the colour you want :-) Not cheap though - our colourbond was about $4,000 and we're still owed $300 from one of the neighbours who didn't build for some years later.

    We have older kids who barely venture out into the yard...darn Nooks! We also don't expect to be here long term, thus a very low priority. In the midwest, we like to know our neighbor's and the truth is with tall fencing you limit that. And these are BIG yards to fence, too.

    We're not allowed to have fences between properties in our neighborhood (which is pretty common here in the Southwest).... we can fence or wall in 800 sf max. But it's pretty hilly, too, so it wouldn't make much sense. I agree with you that it's really interesting seeing how things are in other places!
