Shearing and shaping of shrubs, ground covers and accent plants on a regular basis.
Shrub growth and blooming is stunted and prevented. Newly trimmed plants go into a repeating cycle of stress reaction and recovery which generates new growth. Continued regular shearing prevents mature leaf development and creates a thin outer layer of foliage and a woody interior.
Apply practices of Renovation Style Pruning to allow plants to become fully mature and display their best blooming potential.
Chemical application to plants and seedlings that naturally germinate and are desireable species to have in the landscape. Projects with a native plants palette are designed to regenerate native species on their own from one year to the next.
Removal of plants that naturally seed themselves and are part of an intended plant palette. These are typically natives with the best ability to grown in our environment with the least amount of maintenance and irrigation.
Learn to identify desirable plants and their seeding state. Refrain from applying chemicals to them. Spring is a good time to review seeding appearance.
