Trimming the Hedge…

My Mom and step-dad Mike just bought a 1920’s farm house. It hasn’t been lived in for so long that there were 35 foot/more trees growing out of the bush-beds and damaging and growing around the eaves of the house.

Heck of a hedge. Mike and I did some trimming this weekend. Mimosa and Hackberry, poison ivy and black-walnut…some removed, some trimmed back.

With temps over 100 degrees, we didn’t last very long…knocking off early both Saturday and Sunday, but we did get a fair amount done! We moved several thousand pounds of branches and stuff.

More later! The interior cleanup has been just as dramatic!
