Our laurels, no longer hardy

Oooooooooohhhhhhh, I'm mad! They've ruined our backyard. Fuckers.

The landlord brought over some "landscapers" (and clearly that word is used loosely) on Saturday, and pointed out some hedges that needed trimming. A little off the top, clear the sides at the sidewalk and that's about it.

I came home today to a three-foot tall leafless knot of branches along the north side of our backyard. Leafless!!! Who on Earth would think that was "landscaping??!?" We have not only lost the privacy that the beautiful, 13-foot tall fluffy laurel bushes provided, but now all that luxurious green that framed our backyard and made it such a nice place to be is gone. Our cats have nothing to hide in and spring from. All the dogwalkers today could see straight into our dining room, where I was drinking heavily and muttering obscenities.

I know that this was not what the landlord had in mind, but I can't help but think if he had gone to someone a little more reputable, maybe slightly less cheap, we wouldn't be having this problem.
