A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to speak to the Portland Garden Club and see some absolutely gorgeous private gardens. But alas…even in the midst of such botanical riches I still managed to find something to make me shudder.
Now I have nothing against garden remodels – or boxwood hedges (though I generally find them unimaginative). But here’s a good example of shrub salvaging gone horribly wrong:
It will take a long time for these boxwoods to fill in. If you’re going to spend the kind of money that’s going into this remodel, why get chintzy with the hedge plants?
Maybe green spray paint is in order?
