No, not that Bush. I’m talking about this bush in our backyard.
It seems we’ve inexplicably lost one of the giant 50+ year old boxwoods that lines our driveway. And of course it had to be one smack dab in the middle of the row, so now we’ve got some creative landscaping to do come spring. Any suggestions?
We’re tempted to try to transplant the one on the end to replace it, and then do something different / lower / more colorful in the corner. That would work right into our slow-going plan to replace the previous owners’ preference for row after row of the same bush (not to mention lines of loriope/monkey-grass everywhere), so maybe we’ll take this as a blessing in disguise.
Any creative bush-replacement tips or tricks for us? Preferably something that doesn’t involve buying a new full-sized boxwood (which would cost us upwards of a hundred clams!). I know Sherry’s itching to up the curb appeal out front, so this backyard bush debacle is just another happy challenge for her. Tell us what you guys would do… we’re now welcoming all bush-replacement suggestions.
