Before (2006) & After (2010)
After my parent's help with what we called "Project Chernobyl of the Bushes", Cam continued all the way to the roots for the driveway strip of bushes
After hacking out the huge pit of ivy in the middle of the deck & the deck walls in front of the ivy
Planted some rosemaries by the driveway and it stayed like this all year. Notice the front bushes have relentlessly grown back, not to mention how huge the side bushes are .. it's the same plant.
Rosemaries bloomed, so did the weeds
Side bushes out and progress on front bushes
remainder of deck comes out
digging begins for sprinkler system, rosemary plants moved in front of pathway
Sod is done! Biggest difference yet in one morning after all the years of slow work!
We added rocks, lights and planted strawberries in the bed; landscaper added mulch, orange tree, and avocado tree plus new rosemaries since we killed 2 of the 3 we had moved over :-)
