I mowed the lawn and bagged the clippings.
Then I restored 3 large cylindrical evergreen bushes by hand. You have to lean into them in order to "flattop" the whole thing. I call them my drums.
Also entailed is crawling on the ground to collect the trimmings near the trunk.
After that I wrestled my way into blooming lilac bushes to clear dead branches and volunteers.
I smell real good now. "A bold yet delicate marriage of lilac tempered by two subtle but still present greens".
