Meatballs are only good in spaghetti, but we see them in too many landscaping models. During this session, we will explore why shearing shrubs is bad for your plants, your customers, your labor costs, not to mention your brand image. Selectively pruning shrubs is cheaper, faster, and better for the health and good looks of your plants. We will confront the psychological issues which prevent selective pruning and provide reasons why incorporating selective pruning equates to better profits and more respect. And, as a bonus, we will explore why some amateurs still commit Crape murder (topping) and devalue their investment in Crape Myrtle trees.
