The Q&A Archives: Landscaping in front of house

Question: The front of my house faces West. There is really no landscaping in the front yard. What would grow very quickly to protect the house from the hot sun? I want to put the house on the market and need ideas since I don't have a clue about landscaping.

Answer: Linda,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I would suggest you ocnsider 'Bright N Tight' Cherry Laurels and then keep them well watered and fertilized for optimum growth. Another choice might be a medium sized crape myrtle.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
