Marshall Residence

One-of-a-kind and other very rare plants are around every corner. The view from any angle offers something new and interesting. The property is a constant work in progress as planting beds and landscape installations are in constant ebb and flow.

Is there a goal ratio for number of large trees per sq. ft to make it appealing and manageable? - Most of my quarter acre has large trees growing on it which block way to much light and make it a pretty dark place. So much so that there is no undergrowth and it remains fairly damp at all times. Would love to landscape it, just need to know how much I should thin it out. Just wondered if there was a general rule of thumb. Thank you!!

Thanks, Ginkgo Leaf Studio. I'm a tree lover myself, having been a tree and shrub expert at the largest garden center in Chicago for over a decade. BTW as you may or may not know, , the Ginkgo is the oldest tree in recorded history and much beloved by Asians, who treasure the stinky fruit it drops because there is a delicious seed inside it. I completely agree with your advice not to take them all down at once. Too much of a shock.

Had not considered that aspect of doing it all at once. Will definitely take your advice! Thank you!!

oh Dear Smalls! I cleaned it up today (almost typed "toady" :)) and sprayed with fungicide. keeping my fingers crossed. in other bad news :) a hydrangea that I tried to save is probably dead after it was growing and then I fertilized it!!!! grrrrr my green thumb is on vacation.
I checked out some garden books today from our library and one of them is The Gardener's guide to growing Daylilies. I just wanted to look at the varieties. I don't need any :) I was stunned and sickened to find that there is one called "golliwog"...so I wrote to the publisher expressing my dismay. The book was published in 1998, not 1938!! what planet are these people on?? I told them it is racist and terrible and that I was hoping someone besides me had spoken up and the name had been changed. It's bad enough with other names out there using Native peoples. GRRRRRR
