Re: Shouldn't it > landscape

Hi again,
I broke your message down into 3 topics, hope you don't mind.

Sometimes it is a blessing in disguise that previous owners planted only a
few things.  This gives you more room for creativity rather than having to
work around someone else's choices  My niece just bought a house and doesn't
like the carpet the previous owners put in when they put it on the market,
but it is new, and $ is tight, so she'll work around it for the next few
years - may learn to like it, may not.

Today's paper had a nice feature by James Dulley in the home section titled,
"Dhady Deal: Trees take summer heat off house".   The article deals with
utility savings of course, but covers a lot more that may be of interest to
several readers on this list.  Here's the column:

He also offers a download of Update Bulletin No. 438 - a selector guide of
100 types (deciduous and evergreen) of trees, mature heights and shapes,
growth rates (slow, moderate or fast), hardiness zones and recommended
landscape layouts with illustrations for the various climates - hot/humid
climate, hot/arid climate, cool climate and temperate climate; schedule for
tree care, planting and caring tips for trees for $3.00.  This may be of use
to you in choosing trees and their placements for your location.

The previous owners only planted

> There's a row of some type of bamboo looking growth in one area, too.
> Makes a good wind block. Our new cottonwood tree seems to be doing the
> best right now. Does anyone else here live in AZ, NM or TX?
