Anyone with hedges or bushes on their property knows very well that they need upkeep. We can’t just let them grow wild as they would out in the forest, unfortunately. It’s important to keep them well pruned and trimmed in order to ensure their health and beauty. Letting them go too long without care would see your shrubs grow long and stringy, turning your landscaping into a little jungle. Getting your shrubbery regularly trimmed and pruned will make sure that your bushes and hedges stay the size you want them to while still being able to thrive and grow strong.
There are, as a matter of fact, ideal times of the year to prune and trim your bushes and hedges. First of all, if your property is presently overgrown and completely out of control, then you need to get some work done right now! Once your shrubbery is taken care of then it’ll be time to talk about the best times for regular trimming and pruning. Non-flowering plants should be trimmed late in the winter, or when you do your spring clean-up. For any flowering plants you may have, you should prune and trim them once they have flowered fully. And it’s advisable to trim it all over again toward the end of fall right before the onset of winter. If your shrubs are young then it’s important that they are trimmed lightly and not too aggressively as this will help them grow bushier and fuller. For your bushes and hedges that are old, with tangled up and unproductive stems, you may need a lengthier program of cuts in order to thin out your bushes. This is called renovation or renewal pruning and it takes a little longer, classically up to three years.
