    What should I use to keep them healthy looking and green.
    they look like they were trimmed to close and there are some brown tips
    this is for my own property and I don't have a license.

    I'm guessing they're probably junipers? Sharp pruning blade. Avoid pruning during hot/sunny weather. Miracle-Gro (or Mir-Acid if you have clay soil or if they are planted next to the house foundation) in the spring (March or early April). Anti-decicant spray before winter to help with winter burn. Thorough watering -- especially before the ground freezes.

    My two cent's worth, hope it helps.

    What are pom-poms. I know that cheer-leader shake them. Are you referring to Crysantemums? And cork-screws? As in Willow. You've got to be more precise. Not bad-mouthing but a little more info is needed in this and every post.

    Lots of websites on the net regarding topiary & espalier. Mucho info.
