What trees/shrubs to plant?
In the process of adding on to our home here in beautiful San Diego, CA, we have completely destroyed our back yard. Though it is not huge anymore, there is still room for some "theme" planting. Since we mountain lovers, we want to plant trees, shrubs, etc that will bring a serious mountain flavor to the yard. We will have some serious work to do with the soil first, but need ideas of what type of trees, etc, will grow in our region. Can you suggest a landscaping book, preferably with pictures?
