The first time I ever pulled into Bluegrass Yacht and Country Club I was amazed by the entrance canopy of all the cedars trees coming up the drive, but after pulling up to the front door, I was disappointed you could not see the beauty of the clubhouse. Over the past two years we have been tweaking the view into the property entering the club. Originally the flag pole circle had hollies that were over 6′ tall hedge. A year ago the hedge was reduced to under a 4′ tall, now the hedge is no more. This past fall our staff removed the hollies, installed an automated irrigation system, and installed a large flower bed. The bed is angled at the front door when you are exiting the clubhouse and angled at cars entering the parking lot. The added flower bed will allow a view into the clubhouse as you are entering the property and also give more color around the club.
In the background you can see the old 6′ hollie hedge to the right and then the reduction to a 4″ hedge on the left as the project began.
