Driveway Circle

East Side

The driveway circle (okay, "oval") started with flat, bare dirt and 4 trees.
The landscaper added lots of big boulders and mounded up dirt.
We were afraid that the driveway, boulders and dirt piled on
the tree roots would kill them. Two died eventually, but not
necessarily from their roots being covered since the other
two have done fine under the same conditions.

Chipmunks and squirrels love to run around and over the rocks in the circle
and pick up seeds dropped from the feeders by the birds. Other critters we have seen cross this section of the driveway include bobcats, foxes, and of course raccoons, skunks, rabbits ( such as this one, dining on Liriope), armadillos, turtles, snakes, frogs, and lizards
