|It's a fungus|
But I had already planned to redo another section of that garden:
So I'll just include the Japanese Maple section in the redo. In the section above, we'll remove the spirea and replace them with hydrangeas and loropetalums. I'm getting a variety called 'Suzanne'!
Also going and coming will be plants in the front of my house. This will be a major redo. We've lived here almost 13 years and have never done anything to speak of in the front, other than trimming the maples there. Everything has gotten HUGE and I think it overwhelms the house.

We're planning to remove the large hollies and azaleas right by the front door. There are also Japanese hollies under the bay windows, behind the small azaleas, that will be replaced. I'll share the replacements after they're done!

Isn't that the nature of gardening - going and coming?
Now for the question. Can anyone recommend a weed-eater that is easy to load the string into and it doesn't constantly jam? Grrr. I have an Echo and I like the way it's easy for me to start. It's a little too heavy, but I don't do a lot at one time, mainly because I'm constantly stopping to UNJAM THE STRING. Please help if you can.
