if more people would learn proper horticultural techniques, they could sustain landscape plantings indefinitely for most species....

there is a technique called rejuvenative pruning.....

i also think that 2" from the AC is WAY too close for those arbs.....

i see LA's all the time draw designs that are ticking time bombs....
Thanks for being constructive and not just straight up bashing .
Thanks for the spelling help, Oh and by the way its plants not plands LOL

I also wrote and planted the arbs 2' away from the AC not 2"

The rejuvenative pruning is something that interest me and im going to talk to some state assoc. about it.

I also have to agree with the La's comment. Sitting at a desk is WAY different to how it comes together in the field. I find this even more true with hardscaping they just dont understand
