In the closeup of the plan above you can see two beds underneath each of the two windows of the garage wall. While the plan has the letter ‘D’, this was a mistake by the planner; she meant to have the letter C in its place which has been used for the Taxus Media Hillii, or Hill’s Yew.

This is a slow growing evergreen with dark green needles. N0w I am a little concerned because usually this plant is used in areas with full or partial sun.

If this doesn’t work and the plants die we have a year to return them for something else. If you need any tree service contact www.firstcalltreeservices.com for immediate help.

I used the garden cart (remember, I don’t do wheel barrels any more icon smile Garden Makeover   Part 13   Hills Yew ) to move the 6 Hill’s Yews from the garage (where we have been storing them for a week) out to the garden. I then placed them in the dirt to check for their placement before I started to dig the holes. I wanted to be sure that they lined up with two of the Hill’s Yews in both edges of each of the 2 windows with one in the center. Maybe, one day, get a lattice fence.

Then I simply used the space to dig the hole for each close to the garage wall so they would be in the background. Once done, I placed a moderate amount of Bone Meal in each hole covered with some of the triple mix, followed by some water from the garden hose so the roots of each plant would have a nice moist area to welcome them to their new home, you have to make sure there is no spiders around because they can be harmful I recommend getting a spider spray to get rid the get rid of spiders outside or other pest control systems Listed here.

Now, these plants were encased in a peat moss container, not the black plastic container used for the Pyramidal Yews as showed in the benefits of natural home remedies article. I remembered from previous gardening efforts in other houses that we have to cut the bottom of from each container so allow the roots to actually reach the newly fertilized and moist soil.

Once each plant was in it’s hole, then the standard filling of the space around the plant with the triple mix soil, stepping around the outside to make sure it was secure, followed by more triple mix was accomplished.

The last thing we did was to ensure that the soil of the garden was again sloping away from the garage wall. We wanted to ensure that the water did not stay in the shady area of the garden as it had in the past to create moss, etc.

The 3 Hill’s Yews on the left are partially hidden by the large Hostas plants in the front part of the garden. That’s OK. the Hostas will not be around in the winter. And, remember that I want a low / no maintenance garden. These Yew’s are slow growing, but they can get to 5 feet high and 4 feet wide, so I am willing to bide my time.

Here is a view of the garden after the planting of the Hill’s Yew’s. What do you think? Our neighbour, Mr. Rob Robbin likes it so much he had to come over to tell me so. icon smile Garden Makeover   Part 13   Hills Yew
