I don't have a photo yet, Ed's going to take one and send it to me shortly, but we need to trim the boxwood in the front of his house. The house was built in the 1930's sometime, and I swear the boxwood shrubs have been growing there since then, because they're almost trees!!!! You know how those kinds of ornamental shrubs should sit at the level of the window sill, so you can see out the window? Well his have grown so far up, that all you can see when you look out his living room windows are boxwood. They're that big, like small trees!! They haven't been trimmed way back in forever, other than occasionally he'd send one of his kids out there to take a bit off the sides and top. My son is going to go over this weekend to do some serious trimming. But my concern is that those bushes are practically trees at this point, so cutting them too far back is going to result in a lot of leaf loss. I don't know how to explain this....um....the inside of the bush is pretty much naked of leaves (all those branches) and because the leaves are needed to process the light I'm worried if we get rid of too much of the leaf mass it'll kill the bushes. What do I do? How to approach this?
