Janet Moyer Landscaping Offers Seasonal Pruning Tips for Bay Area Gardeners

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) -  Janet Moyer Landscaping (JML), a full service landscaping company in San Francisco devoted to addressing the unique challenges of urban garden constraints, recommends Bay Area gardeners consider "best practices" now that seasonal pruning is approaching.

"Pruning trees, shrubs and plants rejuvenates them and encourages fresh growth, fruits and flowers," says Janet Moyer, founder and president of JML.

Removing dead or diseased branches also keeps plants healthy, and thinning them allows good airflow. This prevents branches from rubbing against each other and causing damage. Sores on branches can provide access to pests and disease and affect the structural integrity of the plant.

Pruning also helps shape plants and direct growth within their space in the garden. Establishing good branch spacing and one central leader on trees while they are young will help to prevent costly pruning as the tree matures.
