Wednesday is yard day at our house.  We are fortunate to have a service do the maintenance.  The lawn gets mowed every week but the bushes only get trimmed once in a while.  The Boxwoods always look so nice right after they've been trimmed.  In a couple of days, some of them will brown (where they were cut) and they won't look so good for a couple of days... but for right now, they look great.
