The new design looks great! I am curious though, do you shape your boxwoods before you plant them? The boxwoods you plant always seem to be shaped nicely. I am working with a local business doing something similar. Few winter gem boxwoods and a gyokuro crypto on either side of the sign. BTW your work is looking great like always!

Thanks. Most of the boxwoods I planted this Fall were dug by me from a friend's field. He started growing 4 or 5 years ago and now he has some great plants. When i go out there, I trim them and then dig. Makes it easier to decide on matching sizes- and it looks better when I put them in. If I trim some to see their exact size and I don't dig them, no harm!

I have trimmed some from nurseries before... just depends on how leggy and bad they are when purchased.

A lot happened this Fall- I got engaged on September 30, we sold my house and I bought a new one (new to me), and during all of this- while working and moving- I had Mononucleosis.

Didn't know for a long time, but knew I felt terrible. Still have a bit of it I think.

Here's the new home office! Massive improvement over the old one, which was like working in a closet.
