I don't know about you, but "bush maintenance" is not a top priority for me in the winter.
It's time to tidy up, trim our bushes and get our summer groove on!
I am here to walk you through the bush maze!

While this is a lovely quality bush, it is quite overgrown.
There might be a perfectly lovely place on the other side of this bush, but I can't see passed the unkempt and overgrown mess! This curb appeal shouts "DON'T COME HERE!"

There are so many options on how to shape your bush! Here are just a few of your choices:
1. The easy to maintain, "traditional triangle" shape.
2. The "unique shape" bush. This requires more upkeep and is for the trendsetter in the crowd.
3. The "modest" bush. This is the bush that lets the rose shine, a supportive bush.
4. The "fancy blooming" bush. This particular bush is called "The Brazilian Glory"!
Here is the perfect example of how bush shape and placement can frame a beautiful home.
Now, get out there and trim those bushes!
Remember, safety first. Whether you are using an electric trimmer or the manual clippers, be careful!
You don't want to go all "Edward Scissorhands"!
