A new weekly mowing customer wants a tree or tall shrub planted where the large tree next to the curb is in the attached picture. That tree is no longer there as it came down during Sandy before they purchased the house. He wants to put a Weeping cutleaf Japanese Maple in that spot but I think it wouldn't look good there and they don't currently live in the house so I feel a Japanese Maple is going to be too high maintenance. Maybe I'm wrong? I'm new to things like this and can't really think of anything that would look good in that spot. The bed doesn't exist either. Only thing I came up with would be a Viburnum Winterthur. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The spot gets sun almost all day.
