    Hello everyone! Last summer I posted a topic about how a landscaper totally chopped up my tree and I created a topic titled "Is my favorite shrub ruined? :(" located here:

    https://www.gardenstew.com/threads/is-my-favorite-shrub-ruined.39857/

    You guys had some tips for me such as spreading out my bushes a little and I have done that. Only a year later and the shrub has made a big comeback imo.

    I am still waiting to have it trimmed but landscaper is taking weeks to get back to me but I didn't want to wait any longer to share the news here :) Thanks again!

    Looking good! Is this the same landscaper that "totally chopped" your shrub? Think about finding another landscaper, or reading up a bit and doing any needed pruning yourself.

    Really lovely looking shrub you have there now. I hope the landscaper you get to prune it does a better job than the last one.:fingerscrossed:

    It hasn't been touched since the last guy chopped it up. This is the result of it growing back. Yeah I won't use that same guy again. Thanks!
