We took out our trees that had been sick for quite a few years and replaced them with flowering trees that will bloom in the spring and some will bloom all summer. We have a hibiscus tree and a burning bush tree for fall color. We also have a Newport Plum tree and another ornamental tree that I can't remember the name right now. We have had some VERY cold temperatures this winter. Hopefully they come back. They are guaranteed for 1 year...but I hate to see trees die. We also had new grass installed on the side next to the patio and a smaller flagstone patio installed up under the Ash trees. We're excited for spring! We also got a firepit that is really fun to sit around!
