Over planted - now what?
We hired a landscaper (or that's what he called himself) 3 years ago. I showed him shrubs that I like, but my husband felt we needed to leave it up to the 'expert' to do the design. (bad move)
I asked for 'the plan' but he only wanted to talk to my husband...and my husband truly didn't care what they did or what it cost. When I would make suggestions I got a look like I was crazy questioning what he was doing.
So, he bought several of EVERY bush I mentioned that I liked and planted everything really close together in a fairly narrow (depth) bed.
Did I mention we told him we wanted low maintenance and hated the overgrown bushes he had just pulled out for me?
And, here we are 3 years later and everything is all grown together and my husband wants to just run through it all and box it up - like a bunch of hedges - while I like a more natural look.
I guess I want to know --- where would you go from here?
