Thanks...

The yellow shrubs are "Gold Mound Spirea"

I personally like the trimming and it's something to do this time of the year when the lawns start to dry up.

i should rephrase my thoughts.. i hate the clean/up after the trimming blowing out over gravel/mulch beds.. where its too cluttered to put down a tarp. i usally try to trim and mulch houses on the same day. alot easier with the clean/up.

Are the spiral trees tough to trim? There's not many in our area... I'd like to give it a go!
