The Shrub Maintenance Debate

You could take the quick and easy way out with shrub shearing or put in the time to achieve optimal results with natural hand pruning.

Maintaining shrubs and ornamental trees can be a daunting task, especially when they are for a large hedge or privacy barrier in your yard. Shearing large hedges is often the easiest form of shrub maintenance.  However, for smaller shrub hedges and individual shrubs and ornamental trees, natural pruning is the way to go.Natural pruning removes dead wood and criss-crossing branches, improving airflow and sunlight exposure, and plant health.  Shearing can have an adverse affect, as it damages foliage and creates areas that are susceptible to disease infestation, and also does not increase air and light flow.The professionals at Twin Oaks Landscape recommend natural pruning when possible, and our professional tree and shrub pruners are the best in the business.  Give us a call so we can help you protect your landscape investment and get the most out of your trees and shrubs.
