Oh How Fast They Grow.....

The bushes on the side of our house that is!! It seems like I just trimmed them not but a few weeks ago....and they are once again up to the window already!! Yikes!! I am a huge fan of drawf low growing bushes in that you do not have to trim them...but these were here when we moved in and they do a great job of hiding our AC since they are so big. Plus, I hate to get rid of perfectly healthy bushes!! So for this weeks tackle I headed outside with the kiddies and my hedge trimmers to cut away!!


Here are the before shots.....




And here are the after shots......







And here is the fun mess we had to clean up....the best part of the tackle....LOL LOL

Great job! Nandinas grow so quickly. I try to trim my shrubs once in the fall and once in the spring. I learned a tip from Martha, take an old bed sheet and place it in front of the shrubs and all of your clippings fall into the sheet. It's easy to fold it up and carry it to the dumpster. Easy clean up...that's for me! Blessings to you.

At least you can shape them the way you want. They do grow out of control so fast. Great tackle. Stop by my tackle for a continuation of my front porch makeover!

That top bush looks like one I have in my front yard. I swear it's out to consume our entire house!
