Couple pics of the first flagstone wall we just completed...
Hey, that looks real good. Now what is the name of those yellowish evergreens in front?
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Aurea Nana'- Dwarf Golden Threadmoss
I believe it to be the Golden thread cypress family
RE the island with trees.
I'm going to guess the raised bed was not there when you began, and your job as creating the raised bed with the stacked flagstone, right?
Soil placed above the orginal ground level and around the trunk is BAD for trees. Retains moisture against the trunk, a hide-out for more bugs, and generally a bad environment for tree trunks. End result, after several years they tend to rot and it weakens their base= they fall over in a hide storm. Does NC have any wind storms?
Looks good but it's not good a horticultural practice.
Sorry but the raised bed was already there. The lot was graded and the trees were left above grade. We just dug into it enough so the flagstone would butt up against the soil.
Aah that makes perfect sense then- LMAO!
And I suppose there is a similar explanation as to why the pansies are not symmetrically planted in the arc of the the pic- a little heavy to the left. Groupings would've served better if you only had one flat. Or is it the camera angle?????
