Lovely. And how fortunate to have a talented helper even if her time is limited.

Susie at pbmGarden

An inspired path! It's great to have people you trust to help with certain of the garden chores.

The yews have a sculptural appeal that fits your overall aesthetic nicely.


It looks lovely...


What a great combination of manicured and natural growth. It’s hard to do both in one garden and make it look right. The last photo is like an invitation to stroll down the path.

CHRISTINE — Thanks for that nice compliment. I think we have so many pruned yew and box because pruned shrubs are used in both Japanese and English gardens. They really help to calm other areas down where a lot is going own. And they really are low maintenance.

SUSIE & BARBARA — You are right that it is a real help to find someone to work in the garden that has a hors background. I've tried highschool kids to weed and even that is difficult. They have no clue as to how to work without smashing nearby plants.

How fabulous! (the yews and the fact you didn't have to trim them yourself)


Very nice, and a great idea. It's awesome to have a lower maintenance area of the garden, and especially fabulous when it looks as lovely as yours does. :)
