Q.Is there a way to keep sago palms from growing taller?
I have two sago palms in front of the front windows of my house. I don’t want them to grow tall enough to cover the windows and block my view. One is a male that has grown a cone this year. The other sprouted lots of new leaves. Our house is only 4 years old, but the landscapers must have planted quite mature sagos. Is there a way to control growth? They are currently about 3 feet tall and at least 4 feet in diameter.

While you can't really prevent it from growing, you can prune it back to keep its growth under control. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/sago-palm/prune-sago-palm.htm
