Most landscapes are over-maintained, especially when it comes to pruning! We often waste time, money and resources when it’s simply not necessary. Most pruning - even when done by landscape professionals - leaves sickly plants that look like blobs, rather than bringing out their natural beauty.
Pruning is one landscape task that when done right can save you time and money, giving you plants that are healthier, more beautiful and more resilient.
This presentation will cover:
How NOT to prune, how to avoid having to pruning
When to prune
Whether you do the pruning yourself or hire someone to assist you, knowing proper pruning techniques will help you do the pruning properly or find someone who can do it right.
