Step of Green
While developing the creative garden designs for our clients at Wilson WARE Group we have found two things to be true. Good design and good construction are not always hand in hand and often construction and craftsmanship are not either. To alleviate these problems we developed our sister company Step of Green to assist in building and maintaining the gardens we designed or designed by others. Step of Green, handles the two biggest questions our clients have, who can build the garden and who can help me maintain it? We offer a variety of services within Step of Green see below to find out how we can turn your problem into and asset.

Seasonal Pruning
Proper pruning of the gardens vegetation is so much more than a pair of clippers and a trash can. Pruning is essential to the long term health of the plants, strength of the plants and most importantly the aesthetic to the plants. We take great care and pride in assuring plants are pruned at the proper seasonal cycle, within horticultural limits and most importantly to maintain the plant within the original intent of its placement. Our pruning operations can vary depending on client and species of plant, but as a general rule we follow the practice below.
Shrub and Tree care (for plants up to 15' in height)
  • Time Frame - Week of May 31st- to June 30th. (Time may differ due to weather or plants)
  • Evergreen Hedges will be sheared accordingly to maintain shape or to promote growth to a desired shape. Loose evergreens will be trimmed by hand to maintain form, remove broken branches or erroneous growth.
  • Flowering Trees and Shrubs will be pruned after all blooms are done. Plants will be trimmed to remove cross branching, erroneous branching and/or suckers to maintain form, shape and health.
