    What a beautiful property! No hedge maze?
    Your work looks good man! How'd you secure the cypress into arches, thinner manilla rope?

    When you curve trees into an arch, is that termed pleachimg?

    This was the day before yesterday when I tested a pair to see if they would bend enough, and without breaking. I did use manilla rope, 1/2 inch. Since these won't be grafted, I figured a rope that eventually rots, and then thread a few more strands every couple years is the way to go. I used two ropes and pulleys on this one. But yesterday found a way to do with with a single rope. On 4 of them I used a few feet of 3/4 inch conduit because the overlap was not much.

    That's far more than I would ever want or need. Almost too much.

    This is the largest of the four houses, all within a minute or two of each other. Among other pruning like Japanese maple and more shearing. I started to tackle the few wild hairs on the Italian Cypress.

    I'm on the orchard ladder for scale, cutting the twig about 20 feet over my head.

    Off a ladder! You better get yourself tied-in, Mario. Being in the pic does offer a good perspective on scale. Thanks 4 sharing.
