Whilst trying to recover from this prolonged bout of Wisteria hysteria, we got a tad radical. No visitors to worry about so we just went for broke with the circular box hedge around the well!! Armed with a very long straight edge, tape measure and spirit level; we carefully measured, cut back, trimmed and levelled the box hedge. It meant radically cutting back in areas and lightly trimming in others. The result is a perfect shaped box hedge that now has probably more brown than green!
As if that wasn't radical enough, we removed the top topiary shapes from the Yew hedge. Why? Because they had grown so big, they were top heavy and disproportioned, they obscureded both light and view from 4 windows in the house and worse, they obscured the Wisteria. Instead, we propose to grow futtocks or small spheres and keep them in check.
