We came in last fall and planted some pots by the front entrance and did some major PRUNING. I detest the scissorhandesque look but sometimes you have to work with what you have. The customer wanted to see the front lawn (I agreed, the space felt contricted) from front patio, however, there were aborvitae and ilex in the way, we cut them in half. I forewarned her that the aborvitae would take forever and a day to recover...so guess what? Now she wants them removed, I could'nt be more pleased. Anyhow were back this spring to makes some more headway...

the 3 'funerary' ( I think the previous owner was a mortician, I mean, c'mon its too much for this house to handle...bad taste abounds) pots behind the gate is stuck in the ground; sort of askew, going for that 'folly' look. They will get a nice patina..ie we wont notice them sooo much.

I was thinking a mortician also.

It looks like the push spreader has a flat.

Turn this baby into a cash cow account!
