Pruning-  Pruning should be done in the summer.  Since the evergreen naturally grows in a globe form, consider rounding the plant when pruning it.  If your shrub is planted in a hedge, consider pruning the evergreen in a rectangular form.  Pruning should not exceed the foliage of the plant.  If you start to see a woody and bare center, stop pruning.
