    Those little taps on the roots were completely pointless. C’mon, Rogah. You should know better.

    you gotta pull out the roots with your hands to make the roots spread when they are in the ground.

    Hello This Old House Crew! I live in Fresno, TX which is south of Houston. We used to have a thick woodsy area behind our house until the local community center bought it and cleared it for a track and a gravel parking lot. They only left a slim line of greenery for our fence line. So it is partial sun/partial shade, but nevertheless it’s still very hot in the summer. My husband and I miss our privacy, but are unsure of what to put back there, especially with the slim line of old trees, wild plants and bushes. I thought of a Trumpet Creeper, but thought it might get out of control. My husband thought of bamboo, but I am afraid of an invasive species and love to keep plants native. (He also said there is non invasive clumping bamboo?) All we want are good plants that would be beneficial to the environment (butterflies, birds, bees and non-invasive) and will give us great privacy (nice and thick again) as well as easy maintenance and beauty. Please T.O.H., Help this Texas yard become wonderful!

  28. Veni Vidi Vici on September 5, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Privacy is a joke these days. You are still seen regardless.

  29. Jason Webb on September 5, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Why dig a huge trench instead of 4 holes? What a waste of time.

  30. im alover on September 5, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    "NAW WE PUTTIN IN A SATA FEYTAHAZA"

    Can you imagine that accent during sex.

    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚So much work for plantingπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ – still half-assed holes.

    I just planted 6 bushes – used a shovel – dug a hole using the shovel spade to measure how deep to dig. A scoop out of one side of the hole & another scoop out for the other side. You will notice the shovel spade is the same height as the plastic containers.

    Add a handful of Miracle Grow I,to the hole, place the plant, add water half way of hole, cover with dirt. Pat down. NEXT plant.
