Do you have shrubs or hedges that are getting out of control? Regular shrub and hedge trimming can not only help your landscape to maintain a more tidy appearance, it’s also recommended for optimum health.
Trimming shrubs can help them to grow better in areas where they aren’t as full, aids in better flower and fruit production, decreases some disease issues, and can remove old growth that may become problematic.
Of course, keeping shrubs and hedges contained with trimming and pruning isn’t as simple as just cutting them back. That’s because different plants have different requirements. We’ve rounded up some of our best tips in this shrub trimming guide to help you determine whether tackling your shrubs and hedges is something you want to do on your own, or whether it’s something best left to the professionals.
