Ornamental Pruning

   Ornamental Pruning is one of our greatest sources of pride. Proper pruning encourages growth from within the outline of the plant. It allows the plant to have a looser, more natural appearance not the "lollipop" or "box" shape so prevalent in today's landscapes. All plants, deciduous or evergreen, flowering or not benefit from hand pruning versus shearing. Shearing does have its place however. Some types of hedge, topiary and formal gardens all require the "clipped" look that shearing provides. One of the greatest benefits of hand pruning is the ability to manage the size of mature landscapes. You can sometimes extend the life of plantings by reducing overgrown material. Removing branches or limbs of varying lengths can promote new growth from points in the interior of the plant, thereby regenerating the plant.
