That cleans up well?
Then give ArborScape a call the next time you need hedge work done. Hedge trimming and bush trimming isn’t the most technical work but it does require the pruner to follow specific pruning guidelines.
Shearing is using a tool such as hedge trimmers to work with hedges. Hand pruning is using hand pruners which is better for single shrubs and deadwooding leafy bushes. If these simple guidelines are not followed the shrub may not flower, it may die back or develop bad structure. But if the guidelines are followed the plant will flower, thrive and have a quality structure.
To follow these guidelines the pruner must have knowledge of proper pruning cuts and knowledge of plant species. Each of our plant health care specialist have extensive knowledge of all the different kinds of bushes, and their unique needs, that are grown in the Denver Metro Area. This knowledge is important because every plant has its own pruning needs. For example the lilac bush requires yearly trimming in the spring right after they are done pruning to ensure there will be buds the next season.
Some plants require a prune once a year while others do better on a twice-a-year schedule.
Most bush trimming companies simply run a trimmer along the outside of the shrub because it is quick and easy. This practice does nothing for the health and structure of the plant and can do unalterable damage. Many times this will look okay after the work is done but in time your shrub may not flower, or start to brown in color.
According to Texas A&M it’s better not to prune your shrubs at all rather than do it incorrectly.
