Trimming your shrubs and hedges is essential if you want them to remain healthy and look their best. This process involves removing dead and decaying leaves and branches so they don't affect the growth of other limbs. We recommend trimming the shrubs when they start to look overgrown. They may appear too tall, too wide, or both. Your shrubs also need trimming when they are blocking sunlight from reaching other plants, the center of the bush is starting to lose leaves, or it has a general sickly appearance.
How to Prune Your Shrubs
To start the pruning process, trim branches that have overgrown on the outside. It’s best to start at the top of the shrub and cut it to the desired height. Remove dead branches and yellowed leaves as well as anything that appears to have fungus on it. Be sure to make clean cuts towards the center of the shrub to prevent any infections from spreading. Raking up everything you cut from the bush will prevent infection from spreading as well.
At The Lawnsmith, we use hedge trimmers, loppers, and shears to give your shrubs a clean, professional look. You can save time and have the best looking shrubs on the block when you schedule shrub and hedge trimming with us.
