A Whole New View

We’ve wanted to cut back the huge arborvitae in our front yard for FOREVER! What finally motivated us to do it??? A free trip to the dump coupon that came in our power bill last month and was about to expire.

As you can see, they are were super tall! It is like our front yard is an impenetrable fortress of cedar… until we started up the chainsaw and started hacking! Then it looked like a forest exploded in our front yard!

Thanks so much to my hubby and boys for all your hard work! It looks great!
