Re: Viburnum > foundation

When we bought this house in 1970 we had to remove two Douglas firs in front 
a Colorado blue spruce in back that had been planted as foundation plantings 
the house was buile 20 years earlier.  Cost a fortune to get them taken down, 
you could hardly get in the front door, and all of them overshadowed the 
roof.  Can't
blame this on a 'developer.'  The old man who  built the house put them 
there, and
was very proud of their growth.  He was mad as a wet hen when he saw that we
had taken them down.

I don't know about today's new home landscaping, but sometimes, isn't it
a scream what was chosen for the second-hand home you bought? My house
had just one of those small preformed cement things for a porch with a
wrought iron railing on it. They had placed a yew next to it, which over
20 years had gotten out of scale with the porch, maybe 6x6, and
previously hacked at willy-nilly.
