Which type of shrub would you prefer in your garden?
Or, this one?
Believe it or not, these are the same type of shrub.
Did you know that over-pruning causes a lot of problems in the landscape that affect the shrub, water usage and your wallet?
I was recently asked to write an article for the folks at Water Use It Wisely, which is a water conservation campaign created by cities in the greater Phoenix metro area.
The article I wrote talks about the specific problems that over-pruning causes along with ways to avoid over-pruning.

I hope you find it informative. **If you have a friend or neighbor who has an over-pruned landscape, you may want to forward the link to them 🙂
