In New Hampshire, it seems like there are two types of people who are ready to trim your shrubs: landscapers who want to cut them like grass, and loggers who just want to cut them down. There is a technical gap in our industry for proper tree and shrub pruning techniques.
Every shrub is different. Trees and shrubs grow differently than grass. Everybody knows when you run a mower over grass it always comes up again from the roots. Not true with plants. The principal of pruning woody plants always the same: new growth comes out wherever you make a cut. However, every tree and shrub grows differently. Some are upright vase-shape; some are compact and others horizontal spreading. Some grow very fast and require more aggressive pruning; some only need a few snips every other year.
The bottom line is, in order to make shrubs look their best, you need to know how shrubs grow. With our horticultural background and many years of experience, we know a thing or two about shrubs! As a result, the maintenance team at Green Grass Lawn Care provides plant-specific pruning services of ornamental trees and shrubs for our regular turf care customers. Like our weekly mowing services, tree and shrub pruning is a limited, value-added service that we provide to our clients because they want the best quality landscape care.
Proper pruning costs less in the long run. Initially, it may take a couple of years to restore mature landscape plants to their natural shape. However, once we have balanced the growth within the plant, the time needed for annual shrub maintenance is greatly diminished. Once under control, some plants may not even need to be pruned for two or three years!
Tree and shrub pruning services provide another piece of the holistic landscape management puzzle. Combined with Insect and Disease Control Services As well as Deep Root Fertilization, your plants will be super-healthy and always look their best!
