Spring Hedge Cutback Started Today

The landscapers were on property today to start the spring hedge cutback - like last year, we are cutting back years of overgrowth prior to the budding of the shrubs in the spring. This allow us to downsize shrubs and recover in a few months.

We got an early start this year - there is still snow on the ground. One area that is being cut back significantly is the south cul-de-sac garden. The Hawthorns will look like sticks this spring but should fill out nicely by summer.  During the April planting weekend we will trim the Live Oak on and plant sod in the front center of the flower bed and use the slopping sides as the flower bed in the future.
