Last week (or was it two weeks ago?) just before the kids' bedtime we spontaneously decided to cut down all our bushes in front of the house. They had grown way over the sidewalk and were just big and bulky. So we went at it. One minute they were there as normal and one hour later they were all gone just needing to drag the branches away to our big to-burn pile. What a big and positive difference it made to reclaim all that space again! We still need to pull out the stumps, (and burn all the branches) but for now this is still much nicer. Landscaping is really not my area, so does anyone have any suggestions on what to plant here??
