And me. If you do chop it, I would leave a bit of trunk to grow clematis or roses up.

If you look at it with a strangers eye I think you will agree it is all out of proportion for the garden and it really isn't very lovely. A cedar should really be grown as a specimen tree where it has space to be admired and spread itself.

I don't know how close it is to the house, but it must cast a lot of shade and limit what you can grow in the garden.

Bee/Butterfly friendly flowers, but space efficient. :)

What about some plants for caterpillars? Unless you grow some host plants you won't get butterflies etc.

A patch of nettles is ideal.

Your water butts should not need cleaning out if you keep them well covered at all times. I have not cleaned mine out for years. If dipping watering cans just make sure they are clean.

Canada Geese going home : (

A more usual method of discouraging Canada Geese is to remove the eggs from the nests. Many wildlife reserves try not to allow them to breed. They are not native and there are several downsides to them. It is unusual to kill them when they have goslings. Maybe they applied for the licences too late to deal with the eggs.
