This tree is in my neighbors yard, and for years all she saw was a sea of leaves when she came home. One day I decided to clean them up for her, and discovered that the tree could be made into a pretty unique container garden.

Hope you enjpy...

I loke the looks of above ground roots. They add a feeling of permanance to a garden like moss and rocks do. Nice of you to beautify the area for her too!
