Pinching Plants

Pinch back: Mom always said that if your sister pinches you, you should not pinch her back, but many gardeners know that pinching back some plants helps direct their growth. “The most common reason for pinching back a plant is to make it bushier,” states Wallace Pill, Ph.D., professor of horticulture at the University of Delaware. “When you pinch back the top of certain plants, they will grow more lateral branches and thus become bushier.”

Leading by Design . . . As a design based Landscape Company, Paradise Restored is committed to identifying our client’s views through design. During the initial consultation and walk through of the property the process is simple; align ideas around a design plan. Homeowners do not always know what they want. Some know exactly what they want. This is where our designers become so helpful. They can develop half shaped ideas or interpret solid direction. They know styles, plantings, hardscapes, structures and have years of industry knowledge and experience.  And the best part is, they love landscape design and take particular interest in their role as your designer.  View our design in our gallery of works:  Please contact us for a complimentary consultation: @
