Re: mulch/tree

Megan doesn't know what she wants other than a shade tree.  The only other
details are Zone 5 and somewhat poor drainage.  However, the tree will sit
at the corner of the yard above the graded drainage slope, so I don't think
that will be so much of a problem.  She won't be planting beneath it, just
some shade for a flat boring backyard.
