Boxwood Hedges



 This past week I had a Stone Patio laid in the front of my house.
I wanted a bit of privacy next to the front door and today I planted "Boxwood Hedges"







 It may take years but I want my new hedge to be perfect and polished.
Well, maybe not as wide as the ones above, but the look is what I'm after.





 Right now they are new and tiny but I read they are fast growers.
I love the pretty green, tiny leaves.




 Now that I'm looking at my photos I have to laugh.
Might just take years to get tall, but I have all the time in the world.


 While I was at it I added my first Fall Flowers on the front porch.
Gold Mums that are starting to bloom. 
I live in Florida so the Mums are standing beside the Orchids and potted Roses.


Now all I need is a few Pumpkins but our stores are not stocking them just yet.
Soon!

 "Happy Fall"

You'll be surprised at how quickly the hedge will grow. We planted one last year and it is starting to fill in nicely.

Hi,
Boy do you have good taste girl. I planted boxwoods in 5hree areas to do the same thing. I even have a pic saved of what I want it to look like also. kik! Two areas I planted last year. I was amazed at how much they had grown in a year. I think that by next year I may be able to actually give them a little trim. Anyway, yours will look gorgeous and should grow even faster in your mild climate. Your Mum will be wonderful when in full bloom. Happy Fall. Now a new follower. Thanks for visiting me!

I am delighted you found my blog and decide to follow as I am now following you back. I am looking forward to getting to know you, although I will not be calling by again until November as we are just off travelling.
Your new patio and box hedge looks great and hopefully it will grow into a compact little hedge before you know it.
