We pulled out the front bushes this week. I can’t quite decide if it makes the front of the house look better or worse. You certainly have a better view of all that needs to be fixed and painted. On the other hand, they didn’t really fit and as a mama of two little ones, the blocked view drove me crazy. If my kids are going to sprint around the sidewalks and driveway, I want to be able to see them. Baby steps. We’ll probably hold off on re-landscaping until later this fall or next spring.
