Hedge Trimming in Vancouver

Trimming Your Hedges

Keeping your hedges trimmed is like putting a beautiful frame around your yard, driveway, and gardens. Trees and hedges help define your landscape, from other homes in the area and sometimes they even help to keep wild blackberry bushes and other aggressive natural plants from invading your yard.

No matter what type of hedge you have – cypress, cedar, laurel, spruce, boxwood, or myrtle, we have the experience to trim and deliver exceptional results. Hedge trimming can be dangerous when the hedges are high. So, we use special equipment for hedge cutting in Vancouver to ensure both safety on the ground and up the ladder. Our unique shearing tools allow us to create straight lines that add to your yard’s overall beauty.

Trimming Bushes And Flowering Trees

Many bushes and trees need to be trimmed back every year. For example, once lilacs trees are more than two years old, they require annual pruning. Once the trees have bloomed, they need pruning as the new buds start to form in the summer. If you do not trim lilac trees, they will become “leggy” and only grow flowers on the top of the branches.

How often should hedges be trimmed?

First you must identify the type of hedge that you want to trim.  This will dictate your ability to cut it back and how much of a reduction is necessary.  Some plants will endure a heavy cut and others need to be treated more delicately.  Once you know what plant you are dealing with, use sharp, well maintained trimming tools to cut the plant back.  You should cut the plant back to where it has space to grow for the next year.  Then you can maintain the hedge at that size each year and keep the plant healthy by not removing too much plant material.
