That is going to be beautiful, I really like the way you've dug out and mulched the entire row---- gives me ideas about a few changes I have in mind for my yard.

Due to the tornado that took out my mature trees next to the road, I added another row.
In that row, 12' from the hemlocks, I used hydrid willow cuttings from my existing trees spaced 6' apart. I then planted American Arborvitaes in between each tree. The willows started off anywhere from 18-36" tall. On hybrid willows, you just cut a branch off, and stick the branch in water. It will grow roots in about a month. Transplant to pots or the ground when the roots are at least 2" long. The willows are now 3-7' tall. When the arborvitaes grow big enough, I will cut the willows out.

The really crooked tree tied up is a maple the wife found growing in her grandmother's house gutters. I'll keep trimming it up to keep the branches out of the way of the hemlocks.
The hemlocks are greening up today, they were pretty thirsty.
