Fall Garden Cleanup – 2

Yesterday we showed you pictures of the garden beside our front door before and after our front garden cleanup, as well as the pictures of our front garden prior to the cleanup this fall.

In case you missed the sorry state of our front garden, here is a short video clip where you can see the overgrown Hostas, the wildness of the two small trees at the front of both the left and right sides of our front garden and especially some of the Pyramidal Yews which have almost lost their attractive cone shape.


Now, here are the after pictures of our front garden after our cleanup efforts.

First, above is the total garden view. You can see that the Pyramidal Yews once again have their attractive cone shape. I simply used an electric corded garden trimmer I have had for years.

You don’t have to trim them perfectly. After all, nature is not full of straight lines and symmetrical placement of things. Just do your best.

With the Hostas trimmed down to just above the garden mulch, you can once again see the many Hills Yews in behind which will add some nice colour to the front during the winter.

Above is a picture of the now trimmed east side of the garden, including the trimmed crab apple minature tree in front between the two colourful Sedums.

For those of you who prefer videos, below is a short clip of the entire front garden after the fall cleanup.


I hope you enjoyed these pictures and video clips of our cleaned up front garden.
