Well, I've finally become tired of the ugly hedges out front of the house. We had 3, one each in front of the windows and a 30' long hedge on the left of the lawn. So in the last 2 weekends I've removed all 3. I still have to remove 10 root balls on the long hedge, those are strong and will take a while to do. This weekends tasks are:
-tear out root balls
-mix in tons of compost into all 3 areas
-plant 3 mandarin dwarf orange trees in long area
-take out falling apart wood borders and put in black plastic commercial grade border
Lots to do.
