So I have always wanted a Japanese Maple, I know that's a really strange thing to want but there are just certain ways I always pictured my first house and my Japanese Maple was always a part of that picture when I pictured my yard and guess what we have one now =)! Bri and I have been working so hard on the yard, he a little more than I, but I have been helping too =)! He brought in a load of dirt mixed with horse manure (no it didn't smell so great at first but now that it's mixed it's not bad at all) and we raked it into a mound and planted the Japanese maple in the center. Anyone have any ideas for what could go underneath it on the mound? I have never had much of a green thumb but I am hoping my luck changes because everyone in our neighborhood has such lovely yards and I want ours to be the same.
