You may want just light shaping of your shrubs. For instance, the hedge needs clipping, or the holly is getting leggy. A skillfully don’t pruning job will promote new growth that replaces damaged or weak growth on your bushes and shrubs. You can have the classic, smooth cut on your hedges, with nice curves or crisp corners.

Do you like cool shapes? Ornamental pruning in Chesapeake is available with A Cut Above the Curb. Frame your front door with two potted junipers pruned in a spiral.
