Spanish Lavender does not require pruning. The plant will spread over time so if it grows out of bounds you can clip it as much as you need.

Lavender should be mulched with non-organic material! Lavender is susceptible to mold and mildew at its base. To eliminate this possibility, use gravel or rock as mulch instead of the more popular wood mulch products. Organic material such as wood mulch holds moisture that promotes the growth of mold. Another benefit in using stone mulch is the reflective heat it generates at the base of the plant. Some growers using white stone believe that this reflective heat produces more blooms.

I have lost many of plants because of poor drainage, browning of the stems near the ground is your first sign of trouble.
