Landscaping tips


What are they? Whatever they are, they'll need some maintenance.

Do you like them?

I just has 12 bushes removed front and back and a tree. I just kept the two alberto Spruces and Japanese weeping maple tree in the front. Put a flower bed down the side of the house and put fresh red cedar mulch down. My recommendation would be to take them all out, put mulch down and start over.

Landscaping tips


Just another opinion, but I would want to remove some of them, in order to give the remaining ones space to grow, as well as the add some variety, maybe by planting some hostas or other durable, relatively low maintenance plants in the voids. I believe that I would also remove the tall one on the right, farthest from the house, as it appears to tighten or shrink the front entrance, as well as hides the lower bushes behind it. Or, yes, you could simply trim them, but I think that they have reached a level of maturity at which I would want to start by thinning them. Even with one or two removed, you should start to develop a different perspective, as more brick is exposed, and start to decide whether you want to see all of the brick, half of it, or whatever. Again, just an opinion.
