Pruning Aescules (Bottlebrush) shrub in February.

Posted in Pruning at 2:41 PM by Administrator

Aesculus (Bottlebrush) is a great deciduous (loses its leaves each fall/winter) shrub for when you are looking for white flowers in July and August as well as ornamenal seed pods in September.  This plant does not require winter pruning, because this plant blooms on old wood and not current year’s wood.  You should always prune broken or crossing branches when you see them.   If you are going outside to enjoy the sun, help your Aescules by pruning all of its broken branches this afternoon.

Landscape Lighting up in Trees

Posted in Landscape Lights, Uncategorized at 9:15 AM by Administrator

We specialize in designing and installing low voltage landscape lighting systems.  One way to make your landscape inspiring at night is to install some low voltage lights high up in trees.  By installing the lights high in the trees, you will be able to achieve a moonlight effect on the lawn or driveway below.  By moonlight effect, I mean the branches will be casting a shadow on the area below.  It is very impressive and will help enhance your mood even when it is very cold and windy.  The attached picture is an attempt to show the shadowing effect from lights we installed in Boxford, during 2010.

This snow looks great on the trees and shrubs in my Georgetown yard

Posted in Winter Landscape at 9:05 AM by Administrator

It is nice to only get a couple of inches of snow as the snow looks very nice sitting on the branches of all of the trees and shrubs in my Georgetown yard.  We may not see our lawns for another month, or more, but we can appreciate this beautiful setting.
