The grass in the marvelous private yard of the Chauffeur’s Quarters, unlike previous years, has not thrived for the past couple of years. Joshua and I concluded that the p-trees (paradise trees) had grown so densely that even shade-loving grass was struggling so. . .in concert with so much of the clearing out and opening up that we have done across the property in the last year, Joshua did a major pruning.  We shall keep you posted on our success to lush-up the poor grass.
