|4 freshly dug up Boxwood bushes on our sidewalk|
What happened? that is the question Gavin and Elizabeth both asked when they got here this morning.
They aren't used to seeing bushes and so much dirt on our sidewalk.
There has been a row of boxwood bushes along the front of our house since before we moved here.
I never have liked them but just got around to doing something about them.
A woman from our area Facebook FreeCycle group asked for bushes, trees, bulbs, etc to move to her yard.
I asked if she wanted the boxwoods and she does.
I did not know how hard they would be to dig up. My stepson offered to bring his very large John Deere tractor over to pull them up.
But I like to do things myself so I got a shovel yesterday and tried digging them up.
I softened the ground with water, then used more water to wash off the roots once I got them up.
See - I dug up 4 of them all by myself!
It was hard, dirty work but doable.
The lady from FreeCycle is coming over later with her 15 year old son to finish digging them up and to move them to her yard. .
I will be so glad to have these bushes move to a new home.
After we do some dirt work, I want to plant KnockOut rose bushes and zinnias where the boxwoods were.
I think that will be much prettier, don't you?
