Trimming and pruning your hedges should be a major part of your landscape maintenance schedule in 2020. These practices are vital to maintaining your softscape's appearance and health. Without trimming and pruning, your hedges and other plants will grow uncontrollably and their health may suffer.
Here at Sunset Mowing, we offer professional landscape trimming and pruning services for your hedges and other landscaping in St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids, Sartell, and the surrounding areas.
To promote the health of your landscape's hedges and bushes, it's important to implement proper trimming and pruning practices. As we are nearing the end of January, it's the perfect time to learn about the proper trimming practices for your shrubs, hedges, trees, and more. Here, we'll provide you with four must-know tips for trimming and pruning your hedges this year.
1. We never trim more of your hedges than necessary.
We never trim more of your hedges than necessary. This way, your hedges and shrubs will be able to look their best and achieve adequate growth.
Some inexperienced landscapers will hack away at your shrubs with no regard for their long-term care. Here at Sunset Mowing, we do things differently. You can trust us to promote the health of your hedges, shrubs, and other greenery year-round with our professional landscape trimming services.
Our team is well-trained to make smart, environmentally-conscious cuts.
2. Some properties require more trimming than others.
Depending on your property's softscape, you may require a different frequency of trimming than your neighbors. At the absolute minimum, we perform our trimming services a few times per year. For high-maintenance properties, we can perform trimming bi-weekly.
If you're unsure of the right trimming schedule for your property's hedges, bushes, and other landscape plants, our team can help. Contact us today and we can decide on and implement a trimming program that works for your particular residential or commercial property.
3. Pruning is most effective when done in the winter.
Here at Sunset Mowing, we try to prune your landscape plants in the winter while they're dormant. To be exact, we strive to prune your plants towards late winter and into early spring. By performing our pruning services on your hedges and other plants during their dormancy period, they will be granted significant advantages when it comes to spring and summer growth.
While we generally follow the above guidelines, we make exceptions for properties with specific landscaping features. For example, we prune fruit-bearing plants between February and April. Also, we prune early spring blooming shrubs right after they have finished blooming.
Call us today to speak with one of our landscaping experts about the right pruning schedule that will be effective for your yard.
4. We make calculated cuts when we perform our pruning services.
When we perform our pruning services, we avoid making careless cuts. When our team prunes your property's hedges and shrubs, we make precise and calculated cuts that:
- Remove diseased or dead branches
- Eliminate competing components
- Promote fruit and flower growth
