A Lovely Day Spent Whacking Privet

I'm planting palmettos to screen the dump that came with our land.

My friend Pete and I spent the day clearing around a ravine that the previous owners filled in with garbage.

As the dump has settled, the lay of the land has become evident again.¬† It’s beautiful terrain.

Like most distrubed sites in the South, it is being claimed by Chinese Privet.

We eradicated enough privet to make a righteous burning pile.

Then to partially screen the dump, I planted 18 home grown gallon sized palmettos.

Most people would wait and landscape the dump when they were through with everything else.
