When you see something at an inspection that is so very unusual, it should be shared! How about some biggie box woods?
The sellers tell me that the front yard at one time was so full of box woods that from the road you could not tell there was a house there!
How old are these box woods?
The house was built in 1928.
In the family room I saw a picture on the wall of the house taken in 1940.
The box woods in that picture were 6 or 8' in diameter! So I would guess they are about 80 years old!
These beauties come up to about the middle of the second floor window!
Here is a shot from a bedroom window.
There are probably 30 of these around the property.
Somebody liked box woods!
Here is a shot from the bedroom window.
Now we know just how tall they are! About 16'.
And they are healthy! I was very impressed.
The sellers say they don't do anything special for them. They are just happy, healthy plants.
The azaleas on the left frame, and hide, a patio, with a table and many chairs. It is a very private spot!
Given enough time, would plants take over the world?
