Pruning Evergreens

Last night I pruned the arborvitae hedge that runs between my house and my neighbors house.

Now is the time to prune most evergreens. I planted this hedge 6 years ago and it is now about the height that I want to maintain it at. I never got around to giving it a light pruning last year, so it had gotten some what out of hand. As you can tell from these before and after it got a major haircut (pruning) this year. I will probably go back out tonight and do some touch up work on it.

Speaking of pruning, you still have time to get those spring blooming shrubs (lilacs, rhododendrons and azaleas) pruned, but you need to do it soon.
