Question From: P. Fisher - CONNECTICUT
Q: My pachysandra has flourished over years. It's high and thick and spread over where I original boundaries. Can I shear it on top for a neater appearance? How best to redefine the original boundaries by taking some out?
Set your lawn mower at the highest setting and mow the area. This is best done in early spring.. Use a sharp spade to renew the edge.. You will have to remove the plants outside the "edge" and plant grass seed. Google "how to edge a garden bed" for a video tutorial.Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
