CREATION and/or MAINTENANCE of your NIWAKI in your garden

You have buyed a beautiful niwaki, you have set up in the most significant place of your garden, where all eyes converge. Spring and installation in the ground helping, here is a string of small buds begin to appear, turning into suckers everywhere on the trunk and branches, not to mention the form of foliage pads that are beginning to change greatly. And now panic sets. You can not take care of it. You do not want either. What will it become...!?
Yes, niwaki is a plant sculpture, but not a static work of art. It stays a a living being that continues to growth and develop. If you do not prune it, quickly enough, it will not look more like this wonderful plant sculpture that has so touched you

In fact, in Japanese pruning, there are two types. The first, most important, is the formation or structure pruning which is to create a special style while revealing the essence of the tree. This calls for anticipatory qualities and visualization of the final result, in order to work in the right direction. Maintenance pruning, it, consists in maintaining during the seasons of what was obtained in formation pruning. However, it is impossible to completely separate the two types of pruning which are complementary, the growth of a niwaki remaining a continuous process over several gardener lives...

Unlike structure pruning that is substantially the same for all species of trees, maintenance pruning is completely different according to species, in the conduct and the appropriate period. It is then necessary to know the different intervention periods, to know also the different pruning techniques, those based on cutting instruments, but also the buds pinch, the thinning of leaves or needles...

I can handle this action for you. I can also create some for you. This creation is necessarily accompanied by a maintenance contract or coaching hours. The reason is simple. This tree is totally alive, constantly changing ... So that he can maintain good proportions, balance and harmony, or even embellish it over time, it is necessary that it is properly and regularly maintained, prune, and this by a professional. Otherwise, very soon, it will not look more like this subtle creation that has so excited and thrilled you ...! Following your interest for gardening and your skills, this intervention can be annual or biannual.

I travel everywhere for you. For information, the hour of creative pruning is priced at (60 HT) 72 TTC (day pass at 330 HT - 396 TTC) and time of maintenance pruning is priced at (40 HT) 48 TTC (day pass at 220 HT - 264 TTC). But, I'm moving for a half day at minimum. (This price can be considered as expensive, but it is justified by my level of expertise in Japanese pruning and my investment in my training for several years in Japan. This has a substantial cost). You will also need to consider the amount of travel allowances, and hotel nights, if you have many trees to create or maintain. To do so, simply contact me. I will then send you a quote (I shall also adapt to your budget) and we will take an appointment. Here are some examples in pictures, in private individuals...
