  A note from jurassicdaryl:  
"I'm a very amateur gardener in SE Warren County, Ohio. In 2001, I bought a ranch house w/ a 5 acre lot. Although it had some mature trees, we pretty much had a blank slate to work with...so I planted close to 500 trees - mostly seedlings. Year round privacy was the main thing. I'm not a fan of leaf raking either...so...I chose primarily conifers with the majority being white pines. Also some: austrian pine, pitlolly pine, virginia pine, french pine, scotch pine, ponderosa pine, norway&blue spruces, hemlock, about 2 dozen bald cypress, dawn redwood, douglas fir, red&white cedars. River and white paper birch, some fruit trees as well as some other misc. trees.... Overall they are doing well and hopefully the newest additions will be self-sufficient this summer 2007. Have to say I don't like deer as much as I used too...lol. The house had no landscaping around it whatsoever. The front of the house did have one huge norway spruce on left and a huge white pine on the right side - the trunks both being 15' away. We took advantage of these trees and made a lush forest like landscape with rodos, ferns, hostas, ivy & boulders. We did the back of the house completely different - very tropical(for Ohio). I built a large deck and built an arbor with wisteria ( first bloom last yr). The beds around the deck are planted with bananas, elephant ears, castor beans, hostas, horse tail, hibiscus, trunked yuccas. Come August, It kinda feels like your in Jamaca mon... sitting in the hotub...surrounded by towering castors & nanners. Another Red Stripe please...We might try a few varieties of cold hardy palms for 2007. Looking at getting needle palm, sabel minor and maybe a windmill palm.
