I came home and my shrubbery had a haircut. I knew it had been scheduled and I had a talk with the neighbor, and I gave some rough directions "make it look like someone lives there" and "tidy".
I did not say prep them for Boot Camp
Clearly my neighbor was more bothered by my over grown shrub issues than I had thought. Both of those shrubs are now less than half the shrubs that they once were. They will be much easier for me to manually keep trimmed though..
