Hedge Trimming

Well-groomed hedges can increase the aesthetic appeal of your property. We believe that hedge trimming is both an art and a science. Hiring a professional to look after your greenery gives you the assurance that hedges and shrubs will always look their best.

 

What Are The Benefits Of Hedge Trimming?

 

At Coastal Greens Lawn Care, we know that shrubs are more than just pretty additions to residential or commercial landscaping. When properly cared for, they can also provide a privacy screen while defining boundaries within and around spaces. Hedges help to protect against storm damage, and they can be used as a background for colorful plants and flowers. Artistic use of hedges can add to the curbside appeal and value of your property.

Hedge trimming or hedge cutting is for certain purposes the cutting of tall hedges or overgrown shrubs. Passersby would only get the impression that landscaping hedges are being trimmed. A beautiful landscape is a representation of an atmosphere which is environmentally friendly. There is more to hedge cutting, however, besides just trimming overgrowth.

The theory of trimming hedges is mainly about cleaning the place and making it look good with cut and formed plants in different ways. Hedge trimming is becoming an art now too.  If you’ve seen different types of plants turning into what the trimmer’s imagination can do, you can only appreciate how masterpieces and works of art that mimic sculpture could come up with them.

Hedges, too, act as frontiers for homes or sidewalks and shrubs and trees lined yards. Dead leaves sometimes fall when branches are sticking out. Hedge cutting stops the site from being cluttered with unnecessary plant bits. The trimming job may also involve a tree standing on a non-strategic spot whose branches and fruits are unpleasantly seen.

 

How Are Shrubs Cared For?

 

Hedges and shrubs require at least annual care. To keep greenery looking its best, semi-annual trimming is recommended, although the frequency will depend on how quickly your shrubs grow. Shrubbery should be kept dense and full with the regular removal of any unruly stems and shoots.

A professional shrub trimming service can trim your greenery in a way that promotes healthy growth. We can trim shrubs specifically to encourage new growth or to guard against overgrowth. We’ll keep shrubs from impeding walkways, and after we’re done, we’ll clean up the cuttings and use them as mulch.

Shrubbery is best trimmed in spring after the initial growth spurt. It might also need a second trim in early fall prior to the rainy season. Unruly hedges can require a few trims and several growing seasons to be coaxed into a neat appearance, but it’s important not to cut too much at any given time, otherwise, the hedge might not recover.

 

When Is The Best Time To Trim?

 

The best times of the year can happen in the middle of spring and summer if you opt for maintenance trimming. This is not always the case though. Knowing the correct timing of pruning is vital to ensure the plants are viable, safe, and attractive. According to plant experts, shrubs and trees have varying pruning times.

Citrus used for the trimming is citrus and deciduous trees. Deciduous plants are the ones that shed their leaves each fall. Most of the trees that shed are the ones with thick, smooth, broad leaves. On the other hand, deciduous shrubs are pruned or trimmed based on their habit of growth, flowering season, or health. 

For instance, abandoned flowering shrubs should be pruned to relive the plants by early spring or late winter. The rejuvenation goal is to restore the health of the plant. They can be trimmed after their flowering season for good and retained shrubs, and they would only require slight regrowth. This way, you give these plants enough time to grow flowers again intended for the coming season.

 

Importance Of Trimming

 

Trimming hedges are not all about enhancing the home landscape. They definitely serve a valuable part in your garden, offering lovely, colorful leaves , flowers, or fruits. Shrubs offer a sense of privacy more than these, blocking the unwanted view of your home or the road. Proper and frequent pruning keeps the shrubs safe and in good condition.
