About: I like fishing, boating, and gardening as well as learning interesting ways to do things. This site is perfect for me because I like to "fiddle".

Look at all those lovely plants...
As a Master Gardener, my yard isn't always the prettiest, but one thing for sure - I love my plants and spend a lot of time with them.

My back has been giving me problems over the past year or so and I was finally faced with the need to hire out my yard work, mainly my mowing and weedeating. I was very specific in showing the guys where all my plants were, and reiterated that I would not be happy if they killed my plants - yet my second-year Fig was one of several that they thought they would test the power of their weed-wackers with right before I told them their services would not be needed any longer.

Below is a series of photos where I will show the process I use to fix issues like this. Hover over the comment areas for specifics.

    How did it work out for you in the end?

    Very well. The fig tree grew back and produced nicely this year. Of course, another one that was planted at the same time is doing considerably better (twice as large and more fruit), but for a plant that was beat up by the yard man, it came back nicely :)

    So, I guess my intro went below my photos so just pretend that my last line says "above is a series of photos" instead of "below" :)
