Our house came with some beautiful, mature azaleas bushes. We adored them from the beginning and couldn't wait until the spring to see them bloom. They were gorgeous, but were way way way overgrown. So after the blooms had died off it was time to prune. Who doesn't love a good before and after?!
In the driveway:
It's hard to tell with the shade, but there is a ton more play and parking space now!
And in the front:
You can tell we have windows now! It's amazing the difference in person, both inside and outside.
While it doesn't look amazingly better right now, when they start putting out new growth they will be more manageable. The mail lady can actually use the walkway now and get to the front door.
