Martin Luther wrote his 95 Thesis and posted them onto the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Well, what I did this weekend wasn’t as controversial or as revolutionary. I dug 95 holes in my backyard. Around the permieter at 2 foot intervals. It was exhausting. The plan is to place 95 Ficus bush plants into the backyard. One in each hole. And in a few years to possibly have something like this around my entire backyard.

Ficus Bush Hedge

The plants will initially be around 1.5 to 2 feet in height, but by the end of the summer should be around 4 feet in height. Within a couple of years we could have a really amazing all natural fence that is a mere fraction of the cost of an ugly metal fence.

If you have ever seen North Cape Coral you will know that pretty much nobody else has a ficus hedge fence (north cape coral is the barren wasteland of SW Florida), so our hope is that our house will stand out, so when the market turns in our favor we can sell and become debt free.
