About Japanese Maples
Add flair to your yard with a stunning Japanese maple. Some people might use scissors to cut their lawn or sprinkle gallons of water daily, wasting time and money to achieve that desired front yard flair. Wouldn’t it be easier to just plant the right tree instead? The Japanese maple tree stands near the front in horticultural usage and for all too visible reasons. The umbrella-like sprawl of the branches give this tree a type of sentinel appeal, offering respite and protection during times of scorching sun or irksome rain. The leaves' contoured edges and shifting shapes more than satisfy a need to be aesthetically saturated. But the real treasure lies hidden until unburied by the arrival of autumn. Cooler temperatures and shorter days bring with them a less colored land, but a red Japanese maple scintillates with blithe hues in gray Octobers. During bitter winters, the natural appeal of this silent companion helps to comfort and console. And in the spring, watch bees and birds buzz and fly in its foliage, an ecosystem in miniature to which you and those around are privy. Let your yard bear this living beauty and your thumb be green; grab a Japanese maple from a reliable seller on eBay.
