This year we decided to work on the front of the house for a change. The arbor vitae that came with the house had grown from their original 18″ to about 6-feet which is just too much for our small walkway. And I wasn’t happy about the spider webs that seemed to form between them overnight. I do not like walking into spider webs first thing in the morning or any time for that matter.

After trying a couple of different layouts this seemed to be the most attractive option.
In the end I think the front walk looks much more inviting and of course now everyone can see that we really, really need to scrape and paint the steps…..
Unfortunately after this last picture was taken we had a hot dry spell that lasted a couple of weeks and there were a lot of scorched plants, they seem to have recovered for the most part. Since they’re all perennials I’ll just have to see how they make it through the winter. I can’t wait until next Spring!
