So to make a long story short I do not like hedge rows like we have in our front yard. I think they make the house look boring and dated. I originally wanted to rip every other one out and then cut the ones left to be smaller and rounder. But I was told by a guy with a lot more yard experience then me that since our hedges have grown together for so long that when I ripped them out the ones that are left will not recover like I want them to. He suggested just ripping them all out and starting with a blank slate, which sound like a nice idea but expensive.
Enter my dilemma, we are planning on moving in a few years so I want something that is going to be nice and neutral enough to attract buyers and I don't want to sink a lot of money into landscaping (we need to be saving for the big move instead).
Here is my humble abode so you can get an idea of what I mean.
I should also add that I am going to be painting the door and shutters a nice bright blue so I am hoping that will help with my case of boring house.
So I thought I would turn to you lovely folks, what do you think? Is my opinion totally wrong and hedgerows rock? Any other suggestions then the ones mentioned?
Also I am in southwest GA so most plants grow great here if that effects anyone's suggestion/opinion.
