Pruning plants is an important part of what we do. Pruning is not only necessary to maintain good plant health but is also done for aesthetic reasons; it’s like the frame on a painting or the icing on a cake. It’s what brings the garden together and it requires a skilled technician to execute successfully.
From mid-June to mid-July, when the new growth of the season has flushed out and begins to slow down, we prune at least a hundred miles of hedging, so we’ve become really good at it! The plants are carefully sculpted using a combination of gas-powered and hand tools. We also prune all types of small trees, shrubs and evergreens from cloud-pruned Japanese garden trees to topiary.
