During the third week of June, we trimmed our decades-overgrown lilac bushes. I don’t have good footage of the final
hack job look, but needless to say, I’m curious to see how it grows out next spring. I do have faith that they will look good, just perhaps with a few less blossoms for the first year or two. They were in dire need of a fierce haircut. My man did the main chainsaw stuff and high pruning, and then I went in and shaped them (post video).
