Fall Work Weekend 2019

1. Reshape Forsythia

This used to be one small cluster but has spread a lot and last fall was damaged when a limb fell off the large nearby oak.
  • cut WAY back
  • split into two?
  • trash in burn pile

2. Eliminate round weed patch near driveway

This would be a nice place for a special tree or some kind of garden. But this fall I think we should:

  • pull out everything
  • dig up walnut saplings
  • move to burn pile
  • seed with grass
  • cover with straw

3. Front garden

This needs a design and a pln for next year.

  • replant saplings into a new "nursery"
  • weed
  • trim low ground cover away from walk
  • plan spring plantings

4. Garden on road side of house

I pulled up a ton of weeds and stuff to help with the roof job. But this needs another round. There is probably poison ivy here so be careful.

5. Oak 1 (between garage and road) removal

This fall (maybe not on this work weekend):
  • remove live limb first
  • try to take top section down
  • try to shorten as much as possible

6. Oak 2 (smaller one near drievway) heavy prune

  • remove low dead stuff
