never mind, think i figured it out. there's up rights and weeping. would say the one in the picture, in the walkway, would be an upright.

This is a great guide to pruning japanese maples. You are definitely going to want to layer that waterfall maple. Layering the maple creates a "stained glass" effect in the sun which is awesome. Make your cuts, step back and look at the whole tree. Take the pruning slowly, it may sound obvious but think about the cuts you are making. Layering waterfall maples gives them the look they are famous for. Waterfall maples are slow growers so you don't get a chance to fix mistakes next fall. Remember to prune in dead winter or mid summer(in the south) when the trees are dormant, if possible do not prune more than 25% of the tree . This is a good example of a beautifully layered maple. Good luck and have fun!
