This is Bluestone from Pennsylvania - Color - "Multi Blend or Full Range" where we culled out many of the brown pieces to yield this composition

We do suggest a root barrier, but the Little Gem variety that you have planted has a less aggressive root system.

Hello. The trees on the right are magnolia trees. They have large white flowers in the summer. The trees in the back with the lilac flowers are Crape Myrtle. Those you can find with all kids of color flowers. Mine are pink. I live in FL. The Magnolia here is an evergreen, the other tree drops the leaves in the winter, and need to be cut back every Spring, so they will come back bushy and have more and more flowers. Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Southeast Gardener's April Checklist
Enjoy southern magnolias. It is normal to see a large amount of southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) leaves shedding beginning this month. Some find this messy, but if you leave the magnolia to grow naturally, and not cut the limbs, the leaves will fall within the drip line and hide under the tree's skirt. In the old days, encouraging southern magnolias to have a ground-touching skirt was helped along by weighing the lower branches down with rope and bricks. A skirt on the tree hides the leaves and makes the tree very stately from the ground up. Once the limbs are cut, there is no going back.

It might be expensive, but planting a solid row of magnolias or some other broad leaf evergreen instead of building a fence might do the trick. Again, we would need to set them off of the white house by two to three feet for roots and to give neighbors access
