Thoughtful pruning of Japanese Maples

These two maples create a wonderful experience at the entry of this home.  In past years they had been sheared into a ball but then let to grow out again.  It left a lot of die-back in the interior.  I pruned out the dead branches, removed crossing branches and unruly growth especially around the eaves of the house.
