VJPS, the two trees that flank the fountain are crepe myrtles. They are not in bloom in this picture but if you will Google them you will see that they are very pretty trees. A lot of people trim them back in February but I don't trim mine.

Just love the simple, but effective design of your yard. Can you tell what the the two trees that flank the fountain are?

Hi! Your yard is great. I'm a casting director for a new tv show "Lawn Crazy" about people and their yards / lawns / landscaping. It's for a company called SuperDelicious , for a major cable television network, from the same producers of "Cupcake Wars." Please email me if you would be interested in being on our show? We are looking for people asap- so I'd love to hear from you as soon as... right now! Thanks! Lisa Roth Casting "Lawn Crazy" Super Delicious

I love the open clean look; It is an inspiration!


Margo, The trees that are lining the fence are Ligustrums. They are ever-green and they grow about 7-8 ft. tall. They can be pruned or not. I have not pruned mine yet. I do not know what zone I am in, but I live in Tuscaloosa, Al. I am honored that you want to use my yard as inspiration. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for the comment.
