I have forgiven my brother for moving after I designed a new front yard for him at his old house. This north-facing one needs even more help and I can't wait to get my hands dirty!
They are going to replace the walkway with exposed aggregate next spring, so we are going to come up with a design and prepare the soil this fall, so he's ready to plant as early as possible next year.
Yikes. They limbed up that spruce and now there's a hole in the hedge where the spruce's lower branches used to be. Hmm, what to do, what to do...
...and what to do with the bare spot now that the lower branches are gone? Well, I do like a challenge.
