IronWood Shrub Pruning

Most homeowners in the Denver and Front Range of Colorado focus on lawn and tree care, but many forget that professionals like our team at Ironwood Earthcare also offer shrub trimming and pruning services. A certified arborist understands the different types of shrubs and therefore professionals understand what their seasonal needs are and provide care accordingly.

Most shrubs can be trimmed or pruned in the summer months. The team at Ironwood Earthcare will be able to determine which shrubs can be serviced now, and which ones should wait until fall.

There are many reasons why it’s wise to have shrubs trimmed and pruned. Here are some of the main reasons why:

Health: Pruning can help keep your shrubs healthy by removing any dead, diseased, or damaged branches that can harbor pests and diseases.

Appearance: Pruning can help maintain the shape and size of your shrubs, keeping them looking neat and tidy.

Flowering and Fruiting: Some shrubs produce more flowers or fruit if they are pruned regularly. Pruning can also help stimulate new growth and branching.

Safety: Overgrown shrubs can obscure visibility near paths, driveways, or windows. Regular pruning can keep them from becoming a hazard.

It’s important to note that not all shrubs require pruning, and pruning should be done at the right time and in the right way to avoid damaging the plant. It’s best to research the specific type of shrub you have or consult with a professional to determine the best pruning practices for your plant.
