Default One or Two Bismarcks?

I am deciding on whether or not to put one or two Bismarck Palm trees I'm going to get from realpalmtrees.com well here lol in the front yard? I have a semi-circle drive way with grass in the middle and on the sides. So i would either place one in the middle or one on each side of the drive way? Help?

Wink Bismarcks command attention

Bismarcks are usually the center of the attention so i would say one, either in the middle or one on one of the sides. Trust me you wont regret it. And you save money..

Cool The bismarck palm deserves space

It has a massive crown and leave system so bunching them up would not be a good idea. Even though i love Bismarck, i would stick with one in the front and one in the back.

Default So what ending up happening to the placement of your bismarck?

Like I said before, Bismarcks do not lok good together. They look good seperate, placing two together makes the area look busy and cluttered. I personally like the bismarcks that look bluish white.

Default Try making an oasis out of palm trees...

If you got the right imagination and money, you can purchase the right amount of palms and create your own Florida getaway in your backyard.

Try visualizing the palms and sketch them down and research them before doing any major landscaping decision. Its important that you take into consideration the overall height that the palm tree will grow and what it needs to thrive and not welter. For example if you place a small palm or plant that needs constant watering next to a large palm that does not need alot of watering or that gets the runoff water, then your going to have problems.

make sure you thoroughly plan out the landscape and consult with a landscape technician or your local nursery for more detailed information. A little planning can save you ALOT of money.
