Dig up and make new
Often I have need......or an excuse?.....to replant a part of my garden. Maybe a shrub has died or has served its purpose and it's removal creates a brand new area to plan, design and plant up. Last year it was a combination of shrub and lawn removal. It was exciting to do and has proved quite successful and rewarding. So, when a conifer, shrub, etc no longer performs well I am quite brutal and keen to seize the opportunity. Who else is planning this soon?
