Gene owned a landscaping business and loved his work. For his summer project this year, he decided to divide the yard around his house into five different sections and landscape each area to a different style. He also decided that each section should focus around a water feature, just to give himself a challenge. Around each water feature, he introduced a different type of flowering tree, one type of bush, and two types of flowers. Beyond that, he kept the landscaping simple to allow the beauty of the setting to speak for itself. It took him almost all of the summer but the end results were well-worth the effort. Determine the type of water feature each section had, and the types of trees, bushes, and flowers he planted in each area.
1. The two sections with waterfalls were the section with a dogwood tree and the section with crocus flowers. The lilacs were planted by the goldfish pond but not with the weeping cherry tree.
2. The mimosa tree was planted with the daffodils but not with the gladiolus. The weeping cherry tree was not in the same section as the rhododendron.
3. The muscari wasnít planted around a fountain. The pansies were planted with the amaryllis but not with the rhododendron.
4. One section had tulips and dahlias but not with the flowering almond tree. One of the fountains was planted with azalea but not with the pansies.
5. The hydrangeas were not planted with the geraniums. The sections with the fountains were the section with the gladiolus and the section with the flowering almond tree.
6. The wisteria was planted with the sweetbay magnolia tree but not by a fountain. The weeping cherry tree was planted with hyacinths.
