Hedge Trimming


When to cut a hedge, what is the best period and what is the appropriate technique?

Well maintained hedges are a great way to provide some privacy to your backyard while adding greenery to your property. Hedges are relatively easy to maintain but they do need to be properly cared for, including regular trimming. If you like the way well manicured shrubs look, but aren’t sure where to start or how to do it here’s some more information on hedge trimming.

Use the Proper Tools

There are so many options for trimming hedges out there: manual, gas, electric plus the difference in sizes and cutting edge just adds to it. While technically all of the tools will cut the hedges they are not all going to be right for you or be the right one for the job. Take some time, do some research to figure out what tool is right for you. If you are looking for a professional tree service company to trim your hedges for you, give Tree Removal Toronto a call.

Do an Assessment

Before you start trimming, it’s important to make sure you know what the end result should look like. Doing a regular assessment before any cuts are made can ensure you catch any issues or concerns. It can be difficult, though, to go from knowing what you want it to look like and then putting that into action. That’s no problem, though because we will be able to provide you with this assessment every time we come to your property, including any areas of concerns or things you need to know about. By keeping an eye on the hedges, you can hopefully prevent any emergency situations.

Keep it Even

One of the hardest things for most homeowners is to get their hedges trimmed evenly, especially if the hedges are really tall. If the hedge dips in or has branches that stick out further than others it will be very noticeable. Make sure the hedges are uniform and even.
