Several species of yellow pine originating from the South are used for treated wood. The main concern associated with the use of pressure treated wood in overcrowded gardens has been the arsenic of wood treated with CCA chromated copper arsenate. In 2004, the EPA restricted the use of CCA and is no longer publicly available. ACQ is a chemical alternative to wood that does not contain arsenic, chromium or any other chemical.toxic by the EPA. Review the safety guidelines for the use of available pressure treated wood where you purchased the wood. Here are some of the key recommendations: Low-maintenance, durable wood replacement products made from recycled plastic and sawdust are commercially available.
If trees are desired near the structure of the house, choose a tree with a small canopy at full growth so that the branches do not interfere with the porch or roof. Placing tall trees in the yard and medium or small trees on the sides and front makes the house stand out (Figure 19-37). The dogwood (Cornus florida), the Japanese flowering apricot (Prunus mume), the Japanese maple (Acer palmatum), the eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis), the deaf wood (Oxydendron arboretum) and the lettuce (Amelanchier) are examples of small trees in the canopy.
It's easy to use them to make an impact, especially if you choose varieties that have colorful foliage. Go further with this landscape idea: Execute a creative size.

It's easy to plan all your beds and curbs along the perimeter of your property, but adding an island bed that floats in your lawn is a simple idea.
A large tree or shrub can dominate a landscape and make it dark and dark. In our backyard, there is a mature elm on the other side of the fence. We had to consider elm to decide where to plant the crepe myrtle. They are at a good distance. Since both are upright and the crepe myrtle can take a lot of pruning, they should provide privacy and block the western sun. Because elm will have its lower branches pruned in the future to avoid damaging the fence, there will be a good balance in the landscape. A large landscape will take into account several elements of good design. These include color, shape, pattern, light, balance, contrast, rhythm, variety and unity.
They recommended xeriscaping my front yard and putting an irrigation system in the back with timers and an additional drip system. They did everything away for me, including the full layout of the property and easy to see the diagrams of what the project would look like. They did it so easy and hassle free. I loved the pictures they sent and my new tenants love their new home. Thank you very much for your advice and help throughout the process.
