Hello Fred Paris, The simplest way is to go around the corner in the nursery, who will advise you what grows best for you. Another way is to identify trees or plants in general, that you like in the neighborhood. If you like them is that they are strong and beautiful, and so grow to where it should. By cons should not neglect the degrading ability of the roots, even on rock. As for moisture, vegetation cover tends to keep it. If you have more on your goals of plantations, the goodwill of the forum can advise you better. leoia.

Hello, Many species like moisture and can therefore participate in the drainage of land. With less than 50 m from the house it will however exclude large species such as poplar or development conifers such as redwood and giant bald cypress which also have a powerful root can destabilize foundations. In this case I obviously orienterai to the genus Salix to be a willow /osier, which you can add the alder also a pioneer of wetlands. Salix has many advantages: _ very strong, zero maintenance (pioneer) _ produced many branches (BRF, mulch, straw, willow water etc..) _ Is carving quite easily if too prolific _ minimal cost (very common and multiplication very easy by cuttings) _ variety of foliage, bark and port (upright, broad, weeping, twisted) _ can easily give the garden a very wild or very structured to avoid monoculture and thereby promote biodiversity, the ideal would be to plant various species of willow and perennials adapted. Depending on the configuration of the land can be put: _ some subjects of Salix babylonica (1, 3, 5), the most majestic in the background field (10-15 m mini) _ to the mean plane Marsault willow (Salix caprea) Butternut (Salix cinerea), White (Salix alba, many varieties) _ closer to the house of willows (Salix purpurea and viminalis) or Salix alba led shrub willows white tadpoles can be conducted, for example along a driveway or to mark a property line. Willows and white willow can be woven to form hedges (by wind, by-frame), gabions or plessis to support earthworks and trails (ancient technique support of banks) ... Having the disadvantage of their advantage, it will take care not to plant trees too close to pipes (sewage, drainage, septic tank etc..). For the big issues we will also get a good depth of soil: if the rock is too flush (this is often the case "on the hillside") they may suffer the summer. We can do a survey but the simplest is to observe the vegetation (species and condition) in this period. Finally there is "wet" wet ". Many other species like /tolerate moisture if it is not excessive (birch, hornbeam, oak, beech, sweetgum, picea, sycamore, apple, cherry), to see if the ground is not too chalky for some ... (Depending on the region) Good planting!
