Never Let A Chainsaw Artist Do A Landscaper's Job...

My husband and I took our son swimming at my mom's condo.  We started noticing a bunch of commotion.

I went out of the swimming area to find out what was going on.

Some of the neighbors were standing around one of the many shrubs on the property, expressing shock and disgust at the way in which they were "trimmed"(and I'm using the word "trimmed" loosely).

I can totally understand their anger and frustration.  I'm fairly certain that these shrubs looked fine before they were attacked.  I can't imagine that this would be an improvement over what they looked like the day before.

It looks like some Sedro-Woolley chainsaw artists took a break from creating salmon-eating bears out of giant tree trunks to come down here and moonlight as landscapers.  Hey, if it's that easy, maybe I'll start a landscaping business.

Go to the HOA and get them fired!  Hire a real company....what a joke!

Yikes!  Keep us informed on what transpires.

That is terrible! Hope they get fired at the very least and the unit owners complain loud and clear

Isn't that just awful?  I know that several neighbors called the HOA to complain.  They also got dropped lots of debris in the pool, so that got cleaned today, and they also damaged a fence.  I don't think those guys will be back!:)

Can we say that was a bad job! Sorry for your trouble.

Those things look like they may not live after something as agressive as that.  The owners have every right to be frustrated.  Sounds like the HOA has some explaining to do.
