Pruning and trimming back your ornamental shrubs and grasses creates clean, cohesive look. Overgrown shrubs make a landscape look neglected. Trimmed and well-kept bushes can accentuate the features of your home and add depth to your landscape.

Knowing when, how and where to prune is difficult.  Leave the pruning to the trusted professionals at Landwork Contractors. We are experts in Westchester and Putnam county will make sure your plants are well manicured and provide beautiful blooms or plenty of fruit.

    • Play with size and shape when selecting plants.
    • Add depth and height by planting ornamental trees, shrubs or evergreens of all shapes and sizes. These are also excellent as natural privacy fences and borders.
    • Plant in layers, alternating bloom time and size to enhance the natural beauty of your landscape. A few excellent choices include Evergreens for year round color or Dogwood, Viburnum and Hydrangeas for color at different seasons.

You can also add a few features to help make your home stand out and add safety.

  • Lighting- Lights play many roles, from adding to a home’s attractiveness to illuminating steps and sidewalks for safety or showcasing points of interest in the landscape.
  • Features. Adding a central piece to your landscape will extend its beauty throughout the year. Water features are an excellent way to reduce unwanted noises or produce a calming sound. A pagoda or pergola can extend the beauty of your home. Consult a professional for installations of bigger features or with anything that involves a combination of water and electricity.
  • Paths- Walkways and paths are an important part of any home. They can create a breathtaking picture from the curb while getting guests safely to your home. Consider stepping stones, intricate designs or curving paths for extra design elements.
