Pruning and trimming landscape plants is an essential part of your landscape maintenance. It helps to keep and/or limit the size and shape of plant material so it won't outgrow and overpower the landscape, stimulates flowering, develop specific plant forms such as hedges, and to remove dead plant material. D.A. Alexander & Company, Inc. recommends pruning and trimming take place twice per season. Let us know if we can be of service!

Thatch is a dense mat of roots, stems and grass clippings that accumulate between the soil and growing blades of grass.
Is it better to de-thatch
- Brandon of Livonia
A: This is a question we often answer. To put it simply,
de-thatching is not necessary unless the thickness of the thatch has reached 1" or more. If your thatch is a thickness less than 1", the best solution is core aeration. If the thatch layer is over 1", then you would want to de-thatch using an iron rake or a power-rake or de-thatching machine.
