If you are going to plant boxwood near the sidewalk, street curb or driveway, think about adding some sort of protective fencing around the poor things. They don’t tolerate even a tiny drop of dog pee and I’m tired of looking at streets lined with half dead Buxus.
In support of this declaration I offer Exhibit A.
(P.S. This photo is lousy because I took it on the sly with my phone on a casual walk around the block. Who wants me to be the person standing in YOUR yard taking a "Don't" photo?)
What are your landscape basics? Tell me in the forum. Oh, I have another one! I see pots still filled with dead mums and it’s April. I’d rather see empty pots, people. Step up!
