I have been meaning to trim back my yard for quite awhile but had not been able to motivate to do it.
This morning I gathered my tools. The neighbor loaned me the trimmer so it would not take quite as long.
After.....I pulled out one of the orange flowers (lantana) and trimmed the rest back to the ground because it was really "woody" underneath in the front. The ones to the right weren't so bad so they got a trim.
Who knew my front yard was so big? If the lantana doesn't grow back (I am sure it will), I will plant something else that doesn't spread as much. I always thought there were too many plants in my front yard and this huge trim confirms to me that less is more.
It only took 3-4 hours and one trip to Home Depot for a rake & leaf bags. Then, a long nap for me because I was tired!!
