Continuation of Hedge Trimming

 

Last weekend the guys started trimming the huge hedge of cedars that fence our yard . Yesterday they continued with the second half of the trimming . The weather hasn't been that great on the weekends chilly , cloudy and rainy of course it is nicer weather when poor Papa is at work  I wonder why its like that, some times  it seems  like the weekends the weather can be YUK  but as soon as ya go back to work the weather is great , weird that maybe a  punishment for something or at least it might feel like  that to those who work during the week !

Any who , the hedges were way to tall , the guys must of taken off about 6 feet from them and WOW ! does it ever open up our back yard makes it feel bigger and brighter. They still have a bit more to do , that will be done next weekend weather permitting ! There were just two empty nests in the hedges so we saved them and put them in other trees !

You can see how much they had to cut off by the size of the cedar sort of behind Papa !

      After they cut it all down they got the trailer and loaded it up and took it to the garden dump we have down the street ! The village has a garden and yard waste dump but it is only for grass cuttings, tree bits and anything like that no actual garbage !

There they go to dump the first load of branches ! all this was just from our side they had to do Dads side next !

        They did an awesome job and boy where they tired after 5 hours of up and down the ladder  cutting ,trimming and cleaning up  in the chilly damp weather !

                               All that’s left to cut now is a bit behind our sheds !

                        Until next time hope you all had a good weekend !

Yard work is hard work but the results are always amazing. Miggy reminds me of my Little Abby she always supervises.

I like how it's turning out and think it's worth all that work--Miggy must be really worn out from it all too!!

I hope you're doing well, and your week is off to a good start!
