Another summer pool season begins.
We had originally decided to trim the leyland cyprus hedge along the driveway from 15ft to about 10ft. I stood in the pickup truck bed and did about 100ft of the hedge before I changed my mind. I didn’t want to be standing up here in the pickup truck year after year trimming these hedges. I moved the pickup truck and trimmed them down to about 5.5ft, a level I can easily reach without a ladder. They look a little rough now, but they really open up the view from the front of the house, I like it.
Here is what it looked like when I started today, as viewed from right in front of the porch.
Here are some pictures of the final cuts, MUCH shorter.
And before the rain started.
