A few weeks ago we called in a professional to prune the vastly overgrown holly and prunus that were running amok at the front of the house. (Picture taken early this year – the lawn beneath the tree died in the summer heat and has not yet recovered)
The corner was an impenetrable thicket that was also home to a vast variegated ivy and though good cover for birds was causing damage. (It had already pulled down a brick pillar! illo)
There is also a wasp nest at the base of the prunus which is why I am holding back from full scale works. Waiting for those Jaspers to vanish for the winter!
