Phase One of Front Yard Landscaping

Our trees arrived on Nov 1st and we promptly played around with placement. The main goals were to shade a couple of windows and to fill out the bareness of the yard a bit. We also ATTEMPTED to dig the holes (briefly), but then WISELY called our blessed/beloved handyman Jose (so far, he's trimmed our palms, unloaded our moving truck, and now planted our trees). It required a pickaxe! But the trees have been in for a couple days now and I finally got around to taking  some photos this afternoon.

On the left (background) is the Jacaranda, on the right (foreground) is the Mexican Lime.


 Background Left (by my car) is a Meyer Lemon, Foreground is a Navel Orange, and Background Right (by the house, kind of behind the palm tree) is either a Peach or a Nectarine (neither we nor the Nursery folks could tell the difference).

Creating front yard curb appeal is a good idea for adding value, a sense of invitation, and to frame the picture of your home. But you shouldn't have to spend a lot of your budget creating landscaping ideas for most front yards. A simple functional design works best. Then, since the backyard is where most people spend most of their time, you can spend more energy and money on the back.

Nicely done, so far. How do you like digging in that Caliche soil? Even though we are based in Portland Oregon, we did a really big job for a family friend a few years back who lives in Surprise, AZ - just NW of Phoenix. I thought the clay soil we had up here in Oregon was rough. That Caliche stuff is brutal!!!
