The 'BOWL' or 'MOE' cut
This weeping mulberry was given a straight, even cut along the branch tips.
It takes longer, but looks much better, if the branches vary in length.
When to prune?
Most of our
trimming is performed from May 1 through July 31st; during or following the
annual flush of growth. Severe cutting-back of shrubs is done
early in the spring, and spring-flowering shrubs are pruned within one month
after they bloom to preserve flowers for the next year.
Pruning equipment is
continually sharpened and adjusted to provide your plants with the best cut possible. Our
commitment to buying only the best equipment available further ensures good results. While
we are trimming, we will inspect plants for damaging insects you may not have
Even with regular
pruning, foundation plantings have a "lifetime" of about 15 years. When it's
time to renovate your existing shrub beds, we have the equipment to
safely remove your old shrubs to make way for new ones. An updated
foundation planting will "freshen-up" your curb appeal while adding
value to your home.
Get your young trees off
to a good start by having us professionally prune them. Many "structural"
problems can be avoided by pruning trees when they are still small.
Proper pruning gets young trees off to the right start, saving more
costly tree trimming in the future.
