Hello, back again. This is the gaping hole in my hedge left by me chopping down lilac trees. Not a pretty sight. I could struggle on with my basic tools and try to remove more of the stumps, but the closer to the ground I get the more backbreaking the job will be. I think they are best left as they are, they may start sprouting new growth from what's left of them. If this happens I expect it will take least a year for the hole to become anything like a real living hedge again.
So something needs to be done while I wait for mother nature to work her magic. Now what have I got that would fill the gap. I have some spare pot plants that I could relocate to disguise it a little. What I need is something to create a barrier behind the stumps, something with a little height. There must be something lurking amongst my collection of odds and sods in the garage.
It fit's the gap just right. I had a couple of lengths of metal which used to be a gazebo frame, they were threaded through the mesh and hammered into the ground, one at each end. All it needs now is some kind of decoration to make it more interesting. I have plenty of old freebie cd's, some old and very hard paint brushes, some Christmas baubles, and two wire flowers with a couple of plastic ones. Move four of the pots into place, and there you have it. A new, completely bonkers, art instillation in the hedgerow. I love it, and I think Uncle Stan would approve.
