I made this willow arch many years ago, but trimming it three times in a summer was getting to much for me to manage on my own - so I made the reluctant decision to........
Get my gardener to give it the chop!
I have had to hire a gardener to help with all the pruning this year
And to do some landscaping of the gardens out the front for me, it's all getting a bit too much.
I loved the big English Country Garden flower beds, and all the shrubs in the front - but they have to go - too high maintenance for me to cope with. So it'll be just lawns. Never mind, I still have lots to do in the back garden that I can cope with.
