Yard Restoration. Yard shows its age at some point. We try to preserve the maturity of the yard by pruning some of the old or existing plants and/or removing plants when deemed appropriate. Sometimes the old plants have to go to create more space or room for replanting. An overwhelming shrub at the front door or in view through a picture window usually requires attention. When the decision must be made about keeping or losing existing plants, the property owner and Star Pruners decide together.
