Ever wondered how to make that back yard a little more interesting? Want to attract songbirds? Maybe you’d like to improve the value of your property? Trees help lower your heating and cooling bills, but then maybe you’d just like a shaded area for a swingset or picnic table?
Have a spot in the yard that is bare and boring, but you just don’t know what kind of plant would grow there? Try out the National Arbor Day Foundation’s tree store at http://www.arborday.org/trees/buytrees.html.
Simply enter your 5 digit zip code to identify your particular “hardiness zone,” then select to see the list of trees, hedges, and even some ground covers that grow well in that zone. The tree descriptions and growing requirements are shown, as well as their dirt-cheap prices.
A simple way to work now for a more beautiful tomorrow; Happy planting!
