The Advantages of Dwarf Conifers
Rather than having to prune to control the growth of large conifers, consider buying “dwarf” conifers (actually, they’re more slow-growing then dwarf). They will look good for decades, yet require no pruning and essentially no care except to replenish their mulch so weeds don’t move in. After 20 to 35 years, when they begin to outgrow their designated place, just replace them. 12 months of beauty for 20 years or more and no maintenance? Now that is lazy gardening!
