I love pulling up to the house every other Monday and seeing the yard looking spectacular! Especially in the fall when all the pinestraw is cleaned up!
The back yard is a little over grown because of all the pine trees preventing grass to grow in a majority of the yard. We do have some lovely flowering bushes, which I have been told are pretty pricy plants! One plant it particular is a butterfly bush. In my opinion it is a hot mess of a plant and looks like a big fat weed. What do I know??
|Doesn't it look like a hot mess?|
|Butterflies on the butterfly bush!|
I talked to the owner of the lawn company about our options with this butterfly bush. He told me it was a pricy plant and the best option would be to trim it back now and then in the late fall they could move it to a more ideal location. Cool!
|Not sure I would call that a "trim," but it looks great!|
The spot it is in used to be a vegetable garden and I would like to get that area cleaned up, put some grass in, and make a much smaller vegetable garden. Keeping house plants alive it about the extent of my gardening skills/experience. Starting out small seems like a good idea.
I'll keep you posted on the bush's new home later this year!
