Our goal this past summer was to expose the front yard to more sunlight. My husband trimmed up the branches on the two large blue spruce trees that flank the house, and removed some large limbs from the two trees at the foot of the driveway. Yes, that is my husband in the tree and yes the ladder is in the back of our truck tied to the tree!...don't try this at home people!
We removed the brush around the foundation and edged the walkway, what a difference that little job made. Looks better already!
When we bought the house the "hedge" was 8' to 10' tall and a mass of random bushes and small trees. Not really a hedge more like bushes gone wild!

We trimmed the "hedge" three times ( thank you Jessica for the second trim) before removing it entirely.
We ended the summer with lots of light and new grass. Our plan is to plant a proper hedge at some point in the future. Our neighbors across the street came over to introduce themselves and said " In all the years we have lived here we have never seen the front of that house". -Michelle
