For the most part, we’re putting off the landscape and gardening issues until the fall, but this overgrown evergreen was a problem. It spread out into our narrow driveway producing an effect somewhat like keying the side of my car when I drove by it the first time.
You know what they say, “Scratch my car once, shame on you. Scratch my car twice, shame on me.”
Which is why the bush now looks like this.
Eventually, we will put the poor plant out of its misery. We also intend to replace this bush’s friends that line the front of our house, but if we pulled them all now,
what would we plant where would the skunk family hide?
