Dr. Stein’s Pruning Video Learn to love ugly!
Thought for the Day: Griping as I was pruning away the mush in my yard, it came to me that a lot of my plants are actually overgrown, need thinning, and some I don’t even like anymore. Think of this cleanup as a time to re-evaluate, redesign and rework your landscaping. It is a good time to put in some more water saving hardscape?? Re-work the drip irrigation? Sounds good to me!
