Pruning boxwoods is an art. Unless you're experienced with cutting boxwoods, we recommend pulling strings ensure you are cutting in a straight line. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Also, be sure to keep the top of the shrub narrower than the bottom. Otherwise, the top of the plant may shade out the bottom, causing it to become thin. With a little practice, you, too can become a master boxwood pruner!

This project in Chattanooga, TN is really starting to come together! We removed the traditional foundation plantings and replaced them with a stunning garden, complete with boxwood parterres and elegant ground cover. In future months, we look forward to seeing the parterres filled with annual color.

A pool house or garden shed can become an interesting garden element, whether it's dressed up with detail like this one or simple and classic. Incorporating a window box adds an element of charm to an already quaint structure. And a little fig ivy creeping up the sides helps to make it feel like it's been there as long as the home.

With its shaped boxwood parterres, lush lawns and formal lines, this garden is a beauty to behold year-round. The secret to its beauty isn't just in the design, but in the actual maintenance of the garden. You can plant a beautiful garden, but if you don't invest in maintenance, it won't stay beautiful for long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's counterintuitive, but to keep a garden looking its best, you need to utilize the winter months (when most people forget they even have a garden!) Pruning in January and February allows the plants to push out new growth in spring and be beautiful and full come summer.
