Final Trimming at Nubanusit Terrace




This morning the Maude, Jeannie and I clipped the hedges at Nubanusit Terrace. The earlier display of white bulbs is now replaced with Russian sage. It always looks better after its midsummer trim. It is the last garden to be clipped in the Parks and it is always a pleasant moment to stop and pause and enjoy the gardens.


  1. Dear Michael, I love the combination of the massed planting of Perovskia within the tightly clipped tank of box. The dreamy blue spires restrained in their green enclosure make for an inspired piece of public planting.

  2. Edith,
    Thanks for your kind comment. I thought you might like it. This planting has been very successful and it really doesn't require that much maintenance. The weeds are usually hidden so it is not necessary to be tidy every week we work in the gardens. The clipping always makes the planting pop.
