  1. Can you help me with some ideas? I just removed 4 huge, overgrown shrubs from my front foundation. They were just way too big for that space. I extended the bed. I want to plant some bobo hydrangeas with a small shrub in front of them and an anchor tree ( maybe weeping lace leaf maple) I can not find a shrub to put there. It's so frustrating. Any ideas?

  2. This was great, I have been researching "pics of landscaping" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Giyily Landscaping Yatty – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my mate got amazing results with it.

  3. Great video Jim! I absolutely love theses.
    QUICK QUESTION…what's the best mulch for soil health. I really like pine straw but you mentioned it's bad to mix into the soil. I though it broke down rather quickly? Any tips or insights?

  4. Very enjoyable to watch. Thank you. Just so happens I planted three Golden privit this evening here in southern Indiana. Hoping to screen part of front Street and neighbor to give my no dig organic cottage garden a little more of a cozy feeling. The soil is heavy clay so I mixed in a little composted leaves. Has been raining last few days so soil was pretty wet. Now to recover my poor 71 yr old body.😄

  5. This was very helpful as I am putting together a landscape plan for the front of my house, and these are some of the plants I wanted to use. One question: Does the Miss Lemon or Kaleidoscope Abelia stay more compact?

  6. Hey Jim, please help me. I want to plant a potted Brown Turkey Fig tree in my front yard but im not sure if its to late to plant one now that its April, i live in zone 8ab. Would it be ok to plant a already potted one now and trim back the new growth? Thanks

  7. I like that you were able to re-purpose the plants. It really burns me up when I see landscapers just dig up plants and toss them out. Don't get me wrong, if something is dead, diseased or can't be saved, that's another story. But these were perfectly useful plants. They look great in their new home! And even if this homeowner didn't want them, someone else may. Waste not, want not!
