Read Part 1 here.
I detailed how we removed impervious surfaces in Part 1 to the right of the garage.
This post will highlight the native plants we added where the trailer parking pad is on the right side of the photo below.
As mentioned in Part 1, the trailer parking pad was composed of 8-10 feet high of fill in a depression so that it would be level with the cul-de-sac.
We removed all of the fill and asphalt back to the native soil.
Composted leaves were spread on top of the soil, then it was planted and mulched.

On the left in foreground is Chokeberry and a Bur Oak tree. In the center of the island is a Pagoda Dogwood. Shrubs and trees on the right include Ironwood, Fragrant Sumac and American Cranberry.
