Well, I finally found a great guy and bought a nice home on an acre. That's it. No driveway, no fence, no trees, no shrubs, just a house and land. The driveway and fence (he has a dog) had to come first. We had beautiful white vinyl pickett fence installed. It is 6' across the back and graduates to 5' in the front (we are on a slope). Needless to say, this did not leave us with much to spend on trees and shrubs the first year. Last year we (really I) went hog wild. I kept saying "if we just get the large trees across the back in this year, I would be happy". "If we could get the accent areas done this year, then I would be happy". Finally we just ran out of tree and shrub money along with the planting season. The drought really stressed us out as well as some of the trees and shrubs. Not all made it. I have four more specimens (trees) picked out for next year's endeavors. Yes, my fiancee is right, I will never be done.
