These aren't the best photos because every time I go out the front to take some, I feel like a bit of a weirdo to be honest, so I take them really quickly! As you can see, the front yard is finally starting to look green. It wasn't until I looked at the latest photo taken 2 weekends ago (bottom right), that I realised how much the garden has grown. Our lawn still needs a bit of work (not to mention the roof needs a makeover ASAP) but at least its an improvement. The Jacaranda (middle of the lawn), which we planted 2 and half years ago, is so much taller too but it's missing a few leaves at the moment.
So I have a question for the gardeners out there about the English Box hedge - should I trim the older part (which is to the left of the house) so its the same height as the newer part or should I just give the newer part a light trim to encourage more growth? I know it's slow growing so I don't want to give it a haircut only to wait another 2 years for it to grow back. In the past I've just barely trimmed it, but can I afford to be a bit more aggressive with the secateurs? Any tips appreciated!
