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.I don't know exactly what type plants they are. The ones on the left are ok, but the ones near the steps must go.. Any tips would be appreciated. thanks.
