NOTHING has excited me more about this house (with the exception of getting the keys on closing day) than coming home to to the front facade relieved of the oppressive bushes that have been choking out the porch for the past few decades. I’m sure we have some neighbors who are up in arms over chopping them down and pulverizing them in a giant wood chipper, but they were so overgrown, there was no way to save them. I also hate giant evergreen bushes…so there. Anyway, let’s just get to the before & after.


Let’s start off slow, from the living room.




Front view – Notice Mike for scale in the after photo- the smaller of the bushes were about as tall as he is.





Look how much yard we gained! Anyone need some sad hostas?


Yay! Time for more landscaping!
