An orderly garden over time can become a wild crowd of trees and shrubs, especially if initially over-planted or left unpruned for some time. However, all is not lost. Often removal or moving of plants can help, but pruning is essential when renovating an old garden. Keep in mind that it took time to create the chaos, and it will take time to renovate it properly. Pruning techniques for size reduction, thinning and plant definition will be discussed, as well as how and when to do more radical renovation.
