A journey through time
Out with the existing unwanted plantings. The property was defaulted upon the previous owners death and bank owned for ten years vacant with no maintenance. As a result the trees were overgrown and the lot was loaded with huge invasive plants. We removed the Cupaniopsis anacardioides (Carrotwood) and Schinus terebinthifolia (Brazilian pepper) as well as bischofia javanica and a Ficus elastica.
After the removal of the Invasive plants and clearing out all of the debris it was time to trim the remaining trees. The back row of Terminalia buceras (black olive) trees on the property were opened up brought down growing into what is now a nice canopy. There was also one black olive close to the house and one Swietenia mahagoni (mahogany) in the easement that we had removed.
Irrigation installation completed.
Fruit Trees installed, not all survived to current.
Carambola Arkin (Removed)
Carambola Fwang Tung
Citrus × microcarpa | Calamansi (Greening)
Our first experience of seeing rare and unusual palms almost fully grown out in person. It was so wonderful and overwhelming to see the diversity of species that they have acquired.
From their nursery on this visit we chose:
Coccothrinax crinita sp brevicrinus
Dypsis (Chrysalidocarpus) leptocheilos
