Q.Controlling the Woods From Encroaching Into a Garden

Anonymous added on October 22, 2012 | Answered

My home is surrounded by woods. We have a slight hill on the side of the house that was landscaped beautifully 16 years ago by the original owners. In the 4 years I have lived there, it has become increasingly more difficult to control Mother Nature from taking over. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You may need to take out some of the woods. Over time trees and shrubs, as well as other plantings, can outgrow their surroundings. A landscape makeover may be necessary.
