We often come across gardens where the previous work is incomplete, shoddy or carelessly finished. Here we have a garden with some yews that have been planted too high and backfilled with construction fill. The soil is compacted heavy clay. This is typical of new construction sites where heavy machinery has been used to construct the house. You can see the Yew (Taxus spp) needles starting to yellow already.
