Stupid life... having kids made me fat and poor. Otherwise I'd be all over dis. BUMMMMP
I had the same concerns before we started. The tree on the right was already at yard level, the one on the left was removed and then replanted. A city arborist who was here for a different reason actually looked at the big tree said said it should be ok.
I don't have pictures of the "before" on my new phone, but I'm sure there are some on our computer. There was a 1-2ft deep pit that contained a couple ferns and two poorly chosen trees surrounded by a concrete retaining wall (caps weren't even properly glued down).

5k is even well above the high end for me. im simply looking for something that can hold up my food and drinks while also going with the aesthetics of my home.
