Pruning Flowering Shrubs

by ProMark Landscaping on Thursday, April 12, 2018 9:00 AM

Spring is finally here!  What a Winter that was.  Now is the time to start pruning those flowering shrubs!

Why Prune?

Now is the time for pruning many shrubs.  This is because the shrubs are leafless so you can better see the shape and identify dead, damaged and diseased wood.  Late Summer and Fall pruning are not ideal times as new growth is subject to winter injury.

When to Prune?

Summer blooming shrubs are pruned in late winter/early spring because the flower buds form on new wood.  

Spring flowering shrubs should be pruned after flowering.  If pruned too early, you will remove the flowering buds.  

How to Prune?

There are two types of pruning cuts: heading cuts and thinning cuts.  Heading cuts remove part of a branch back to a bud.  Thinning cuts remove an entire limb.  

Make pruning cuts correctly.  Heading cuts- prune 1/4 inch above the bud.  Thinning cuts- these are just above the side branches and parallel to them.  These cuts can be used to reduce the overall size of the plant.

When one third of the plant's oldest stems are cut to the ground, its called renovation or renewal pruning.  This can be done in spring or summer.

Pruning can help the overall health of the shrub.  It allows for new growth as well as allowing light to penetrate the interior of the shrub to promote new, health buds to grow.  Now is the time to get outside and start pruning!

Its Cold But Not To Early To Think Spring!!

by ProMark Landscaping on Thursday, December 21, 2017 7:00 AM
With today being the first day of Winter, we are going to talk about Spring!  You may be confused and ask why?

 

Now is the time to start thinking about your spring garden design and house upgrades.  Looking for a new deck?  Maybe a paver patio?  How about that garden that is not looking so hot that you put off year after year thinking that "This will be the year I do the garden"!  Only to be sidetracked with other things that need your attention.

 

 

That is where ProMark Landscaping comes in.  Whatever your need may be, we have you covered.  From garden designs and intall to decks, patios, outdoor fireplace or kitchen, sidewalk repairs, tree work, irrigation systems and tons more!  If you have a vision, we will bring it to life.  All you have to do is sit back and watch your home turn into the dream you always wanted.
