Selecting Trees for Your Yard

Can't wait! This one's on it's way! Needed a fast growing shade tree! This one claims to grow 15 ft in a year! Found it for 20 bucks online, that included shipping... royal empress tree!

Decorate the inside of your fence with hanging baskets. Cute idea. Instead of planting trees etc to fill up empty space by the fence, just hang flowers. Cheaper!
