Hacking and Slashing

Spending a little time in our UK garden where some serious work needs to be undertaken.

 Recent gale force winds have delayed the renewal of fence panels which have become damaged over the years. Close feather-boarded panels are the most common type of panels in use though not really the most suitable. Something that filters the wind and yet maintains our privacy would be better. Another problem is that heavy rain combined with clay soil takes its toll of the fence posts. The fence is situated behind our mature shrubs which need to be pruned so that we can get to the fence. 

Carol loves to hack and slash at the shrubs and trees in our garden so she is always first to reach for the loppers and secateurs. 

I often have to send search and rescue parties out to untangle her from the undergrowth on those occasions when she gets carried away with the pruning.

  1. She does look pretty comfy with those pruners in her hands! :)
