Garden Cleanup

Here is a garden I received in Panama’s Ancon area. A cute little garden located in the skirts of tropical forest. Upon inspection it was evident the garden needed some TLC. Among the problems with it I found cluttering the limited light and air flow, Asian beetles, fungus, and erosion in the soil.

Here are some before pics.

Clean up time

I removed the Guandu trees, the infestation of Asian Beetles was too much to handle, I priorities air and light flow so off with them.

There were two palm trees. The first shown above which presented danger for the roof of the house. The other palm tree blocked light in the middle of the yard, it was also extremely slanted and there was concern it fall over with he heavy rain season.
