Since our home went unloved for many years before we moved in, the hedge in front of the house became overgrown. Texas sage is a beautiful plant, but if it isn't pruned regularly, it becomes more of an eyesore than anything. Our hedge was huge and lopsided. It looked disproportionate to our entryway, but because it hadn't been trimmed much before, the insides of the bushes were brown and didn't have any leaves. Once a texas sage bush gets overgrown it's all but impossible to trim it back, so we decided that it had to go. We also used that opportunity to take out a few more creosotes!
See the problem?
Let's look closer...
