How to Prune and Renovate the Overgrown Garden

Covers basic pruning of ornamental trees and shrubs as well as creative solutions to the overgrown or over-planted garden. The types of pruning cuts are shown and discussed. The concept of the ‘pruning budget’ is introduced. Plants are divided into three categories according to their natural habits and pruning techniques given for each. Before and after slides of pruning and diagrams will be used to illustrate pruning for size reduction and pruning for definition (thinning). And attendees will gain insight into the process of yard renovation, where pruning is but one tool in restoring a garden.
