It’s Fall – Stop Your Pruning! Cumming, GA
landscaped front yard

Pruning is a necessary lawn maintenance task if you want to keep your shrubs and flowering trees in top condition. However, it is important that you know when to prune. Pruning your landscape at the wrong time of year can actually do more harm than good.

Winter pruning is very popular. Pruning during this dormant season can produce a burst of new growth when spring blooming arrives. Another time of year that it is okay and recommended to prune is during the summer, when seasonal growth is complete. During the summer months, pruning can direct or slow the growth of the shrub or tree. You can also get rid of defective or heavy limbs during summer pruning.

When it comes to the fall season, go ahead and put your pruning tools in storage! During this season, decay fungi often spread their spores abundantly. In addition, trees and shrubs don’t heal as quickly after cutting during the fall. Finally, pruning during the early fall can lead to vigorous regrowth. If this regrowth doesn’t harden off before winter sets in, there could be potential cold damage to your trees and shrubs.

For more information on the best times to prune your landscape, please consult with one of our landscaping experts at Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping. We provide full service lawn maintenance for yards of all sizes and shapes!

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
