The shrubs that eventually formed the hedge on the left side of the front lawn were planted in 1997 when our landscaping was totally renovated. A couple of years ago, the hedge started to looked a bit raggedy but was nursed along until now. Our landscaper found just the right size replacements, so it was out with the old, and in with these new beauties.
They’ll eventually grow together and be trimmed as a hedge.
Meanwhile, in the back, deer had been busy feasting on two plants. Hopefully, they won’t care for the flavor of these replacements.
In a few weeks, once all the helicopters come down from the maple tree near the patio, we’ll have our annual spring clean-up, trimming, and fresh mulching.
