The massive Mesquite that covers almost 3/4's of the yard is getting cut back today! YAY! The deep shade it has created has made it impossible for even shade plants to thrive :(
Problem is there are 3 ponds directly under the tree (yes, poor planning on my part) So 1 sharp branch hits my pond liner and I'm doomed. Wish me luck :)
The house was built in 1994 so I'm assuming it was planted then. I bought the house in 2000.
The landscaper hauled off the branches. It took them 5 1/2 hours. They had to climb up and tie each branch as they cut it and then lower it so it didn't crash into the ponds and rip the liner. I'm so relieved its finally cut back. Now I can actually have some flowers blooming in the back yard.
