Yesterday I gave the hedge around the terrace a somewhat aggressive trimming. I had really gotten tired of it invading more and more of the space so I cut off a good chunk on each side. I really wanted to trim it even more aggressively but the trimmer was already struggling with the amount I did take off.
This variety is supposed to grow back pretty much no matter how hard you trim it so I suppose it will. If it’s doesn’t I’ll just rip it up and put something nice, with flowers, in it’s place. I’ve never been very fond of it anyway but it was there when we got the house and we haven’t gotten around to replace it…yet.
