Well, it still needs trimming.
When the privacy fence gets rebuilt next month it will all be removed anyway. I am not allowed to remove ONE fence without safeguarding the pool so I am going to build the next fence, over the next couple of months a few feet back from that one, replace the 42 year old chain link section [how is that private???] and then disassemble the old fence and retask that wood and replant SOME of that bush.
So it will be done by Spring, along with the biodiesel pool heater.
