Week One, and one of the first things I did was plant some holly bushes along the road edge, in the hope of creating a bit of a privacy screen in future.
|It's going to take some time ....|
The other thing I had to deal with IMMEDIATELY was a tree that had fallen partially onto the road. We've had a series of gales recently.
|FIX THIS BEFORE THE COUNCIL SEES IT, ASHBLESS!|
|The Madeline tree ;-)|
The answer is to collar the ivy, so that the top growth dies off.
We've got to do this to every tree on the roadline. That'll keep us busy... :-)
