    Rebuilding The Backyard

    We're finally getting the backyard put back together. Won't be doing any real planting until the spring.

    Congrats and looking good! Unless $$$ are the issue, if you plant now, your plants won't be stressed in your heat next summer as they will have all winter/spring to establish root growth. Just food for thought...

    $$$ isn't an issue. We want some banana trees and palms. We want to give them a good chance being newly planted headed into winter. We get frosts and occasional freezes here.

    Nice job! It look great! It will be fun to see the bigger plants in the area.

    I got an 8 foot tall Pindo palm that I swept snow and ice off last year. Made it just fine.

    Like that Palm. May have to plant that one in the spring. Just don't want to plant anything this close to winter.

    Re: Rebuilding The Backyard

    I'm with you, Shock. I did chance moving a few roses and camelias just to get the structural stuff in place last week before the landscapers came to lay some sod and mulch, but I am saving all additional plant work until spring. Did you lose much small stuff during construction?

    Not really. We didn't have any planters in the back yard. Did loose all my grass though. We added a nice big paver wall behind the pool also to plant a palm and some other things.
