The most important landscape maintenance practice is the control of plant size by the correct method of pruning to retain the natural branching characteristics of the plants and integrity of the landscape design. Dormant pruning of landscape plants is a half-day, hands-on clinic and a timely training opportunity for you and your crews to get back to the basics and learn the proper way to prune in time for winter and early spring pruning.

General information: This seminar will include a lecture as well as hands-on training. Attendees will need to bring their own notepad and pen, hand pruning shears, a small pruning saw, and long handle lopping shears, and will need to dress appropriately for outdoor practical training. As an attendee, you will receive a gift provided by A.M. Leonard including a pair of pruners, knife and leather sheath. 

Instructed by Gail Reinhart – Hidden Creek Landscaping
Reinhart joined the Hidden Creek Team in 2014, bringing with her more than 15 years of experience in horticulture, sales, project, and operations management and employee development. She has an Associate’s Degree in landscape and turfgrass management from Owens Community College and has spent time working out of state in Michigan and Delaware, gaining knowledge of golf course and retail garden center operations, and residential and commercial landscape management.

Note: As with most of OLA's fall offerings, space will be limited based on the venue size. It's suggested that you sign up as soon as you are able to commit to the event.
