Before and after the formal pruning on a Long Island property. Anyone can put a plant into the ground. Not just anyone can formally prune those plants over time to fit into the architecture of the house. Before you hire anyone to install your idea of paradise please ask them the most important questions.
Who will be managing and maintaining the gardens you are installing? How much will it cost to manage and maintain the gardens you are installing? At what point will the gardens be at maturity and how much will it cost to maintain the value of the gardens? Do you have properties you have designed and installed that you have been managing that I can see? Who does the pruning and manages the soil/plant (fertilizing) needs? What is this going to cost me and how often is it needed? What can I do myself to save money?
With these questions you are more prepared for the gardening choices you will make as it applies to landscape and garden design.
These pictures are a simple demonstration of formal garden design and how the longterm care to maintain the value of your original investment pays off.
