We hate to be the ones to tell you, but the right time is related to the type of plant that needs pruning. Fruit trees, evergreens, and other flowering trees are usually best-served by a late winter pruning, but many shrubs will respond better by being pruned directly after blooming. Search the specific species to find out which time is best for your plants.

As with the last question, it depends. The size of the space, materials being used, plant choices (exotic or native), and plenty of other factors are involved in coming up with a landscape design project total. We can come and assist you with an estimate on your project at no cost or obligations.
