Prescott Valley, AZ

I recently moved to Arizona from northern Illinois. I have successfully started a rose garden and had great success with my new plants. I purchased them from a Phoenix grower so I know they will do well in my area. Winters are mild here compared to Illinois and my question is: Do i prepare my Hybred and Floribunda roses the way I did in Illinois by cutting them back to about 8-10 inches and mounding them with soil? I cannot use rose cones as they will blow away at our 5000 ft. elevation and gusty winds. Another question: I have 4 - 24
