There isn’t much time left in the season for yard work — other than raking leaves of course — but some itty bitty shrubs on the end of season clearance sale caught my eye. I have been pulling weeds and raking up pine needles and I know just where these little guys could live…
Once they were planted in a nice little row, I made sure to water them really well — especially since it has been a very dry year. Leo is ok with the digging and planting parts, but isn’t a fan of water, can you tell?
The shrubs are little now, but will grow to be 3-4 feet wide and 8-10 feet tall when fully grown — gradually creating a nice bit of privacy for the yard.
I’m gradually getting it under control. The removal of the two crazy pine trees over the summer helped a lot — along with many many hours of weeding and still much more work to go. Over the winter I’ll have to come up with a plan so when spring comes, I’ll be ready to whip this part of the yard into shape.
Now all I have to do is take down the screened porch — which will happen next weekend. Till then, stay tuned!
