Hedge Trimming

Hedge trimming is not only done for visual appeal but regular hedge trimming is necessary to train the hedge to grow to its fullest capacity. By the end of the second year of your hedges growth, hedge trimming should become a bi-annual event.

In the spring, hedges are trimmed to remove the winter misery including any dead or broken branches. This is the time of year when your hedges will grow the most. Just as with trees, hedges slow down their growth rate in late summer to conserve moisture and prepare for winter.

Late summer or early fall (Jul-Sept) just after your hedges have achieved their maximum growth, is the best time for a second trimming when you can shape the hedges and at their slower rate of growth they will maintain their shape the longest.

Tree Trimming

When spring and summer come around, tree owners need to have maintenance done on their trees to ensure new growth and prevent any damage to the home or backyard. Tree trimming and pruning encourages air circulation which reduces disease incidence and the possibility of damage from high winds. Tree trimming also removes unhealthy or dangerous limbs that can easily fail in severe weather and allows more sunlight reach your understory plants.

Leaf Mulching

Instead of raking leaves, stuffing them into lawn bags and hauling the bags to the curb, mow them with a mulching mower – a lawnmower with a specially designed high deck and a mulching blade that chops leaves into fragments as tiny as confetti. As the shredded leaves decompose, they will act as a natural fertilizer and weed control agent.

For those who insist on a spotless lawn year-round and might be concerned about what the neighbors will think of the brown leaf bits the mower leaves behind, don’t worry. The shredded leaves will filter through the grass and disappear from sight.
