Texas sage shrub

A few weeks ago, 我有机会拍了另一张我路过的风景的照片,在那里我刚刚完成了一个景观咨询.

可悲的是, I often see examples of truly ‘interesting’ or should I say ‘bad’ 修剪.  我开车经过这片风景,然后做了个调头,以便能拍张照片。

Shrub 修剪

Shrub 修剪

我不知道你怎么想,但这些德州鼠尾草灌木看起来像蘑菇,你不觉得吗?

可悲的是, 修剪 these beautiful flowering shrubs this way, robs them of their flowers, increases maintenance, creates dead wood and shortens their life.

虽然有相当多的灌木可以很好地重复正式的修剪,但应该避免对开花灌木这样做.

我必须承认,我见过德州鼠尾草和其他开花灌木被修剪成许多不同的形状……

但是,让我坦白地说,灌木并不意味着是纸杯蛋糕,飞盘或软糖

Here are just a few reasons why…

  • 它去掉了灌木为自己制造能量所需的叶子
  • 过度的修剪实际上会让你的灌木长得更快,这意味着需要更多的维护
  • 灌木修剪通常需要更多的水,因为他们不断地工作,以弥补失去的叶子
  • Continued shearing will shorten the lifespan of your shrubs
  • Green ‘blobs’ are ugly compared to beautiful flowering shrubs

如果你厌倦了用“错误”的方式来维护开花灌木,那么你就需要花费大量的时间和金钱. I invite you to join me in my online shrub 修剪 workshop w在这里 I will teach you the right way to prune.

想象你的户外空间充满了美丽的开花灌木,而不是绿色的“球”. Believe it or not, 上面照片里的灌木是同一种植物,只是它们的维护方式不同. 左边的花了更多的钱和时间,而另一种需要一年修剪一次(或两次).

In my online class, 我告诉你如何与你的庭园设计或如何照顾你自己的灌木. Got ‘green balls’ already in your landscape? 我会教你如何让它们恢复活力,以及一年中最好的时机.

So, 扔掉院子里的“绿色斑点”,学会自信地修剪——这比你想象的要容易得多. 了解更多 在这里 and what students have to say about the class.

    他们看起来真的很奇怪,旁边的仙人掌和奥克蒂洛自然离开-就像来自儿童幻想书的东西. I wonder if the same man hours could have been taken from ugly, counterproductive tasks (as per your note of less blooms), 并重新分配到他们土地上的其他地方在园艺上有积极的效果? But it's still funny, since it isn't my work!

    似乎这是一种非常普遍的做法,即使是那些在betway旗舰版下载整个HOA地区实践这一做法的所谓的专业庭院设计师. I refer to this as butchering. They should work in a meat market. You would think they would know better. 他们真的没有足够的工作要做,还是他们只是在证明自己的价值? Hopefully the HOA is not requiring this to be done.
    更有趣的是,房主花钱让他们在自己的房子里这样做. 在我隔壁,一家景观服务公司正在把一棵非洲漆树砍成四英尺高的灌木. Just incredibly stupid beyond words.

    当betway旗舰版下载5年前从华盛顿州搬到凤凰城的时候,betway旗舰版下载注意到两件事:一是有多少人租用他们的院子,二是大部分灌木被剪得残缺. betway旗舰版下载附近的HOAs里的圣人是怎么做的他们让我想起了巨大的图钉. 实际上我更喜欢蘑菇,但我更喜欢小屋花园风格和最小的修剪在我的景观.
