Bonsai of the week, May 28th, 2009

This house is located in mid Beacon Hill somewhere east of Beacon Ave. Truthfully I was a little lost when I ran across it so I can't say exactly where. I was so excited about the AWESOME statues in the front of the house that I totally forgot to take photos of their well groomed shrubbery so you are just going to have to trust me that it was cool.

Bonsai of the week, May 16th 2009

Why just stop when you have a nice well shaped bush? This person decided to add a second story to their shrubbery and deserve Bonsai of the Week for going that extra mile. Located somewhere over by the Viewpoint Park, it makes me think that Dr. Suess might have trimmed his bushes to look something like this.

Bonsai of the week

This is my favorite yard this week, it's along 15th Ave S in central Beacon Hill. Not only are there a lot of crazy Bonsai, but it's topped with plastic animals and even a palm tree! Beacon Hill at it's best!

shrubs as walls

I've been admiring people that form their shrubbery as walls that separate them from the street. If you think about it, who is going to put graffiti on a bush? Plus it can change over time, if you don't like your neighbor you could grow it bigger or maybe carve hearts into it for valentines day? It's still a labor of love but probably more eco-friendly than chopping down some trees to make a fence.
