Think Trees!

Think Trees!

TreesI recently read an interesting article published by the National Association of Realtor’s HouseLogic website on “The Best Trees to Grow Curb Appeal”.  When thinking of what tree is best for your yard (maybe you want to replace one that has outlived its beauty) here are a few recommended:

  • Crape Myrtle – drought and deer resistant
  • Saucer Magnolia – Does well in Clay
  • Eastern Red Cedar – Not picky about soil
  • Fig – Grows in this zone and produces fruit after 2 -3 years

Others are listed but these stood out to me.  See the full article at:

The bonus here at Stillwaters Estates is that if you want to replace a bush or tree in your yard you can make the purchase and our maintenance crew will put it in the ground for you.
