    Total Hack Job on the Bushes Today

    And I'm not talking about George. Our driveway is too narrow for both of our big cars (a van and full-size sedan) and the other day I opened my door and it hit a branch sticking out from the arbor-vidae (ugly and overgrown) and it scratched the paint a bit on my fancy ride so I got out the saw and the trimmer and went to town. By the time I was done I had a lot more room, but the bushes looked terrible. I went to Home Depot and bought a bunch of 12" square concrete pavers and ran a row of them down the driveway so I have more room for walking and parking. Now I need to plant something to fix my screw-up. I think I need to take the arbor-vidae completely out, but not this week!

    Actually, they are a great bush if you keep them trimmed and shaped. After 20 years or so of neglect, they can get ugly and huge! I might even replace the ugly one with another couple to form some sort of hedge. They are a pretty green too.
