What is trimming and how it benefits your landscaping plants.

Trimming your plants is akin to getting your haircut! We remove overgrown branches on your shrubs, hedges, and other landscaping plants. This gives the plant a manicured appearance and allows it to receive ample sunlight and moisture.

Trimming aids plants in growing back thicker than before, which provides improved curb appeal for your landscaping, reduces insect infestation, and prevents overgrowth.

Trimming is usually done a few times per year at a minimum. For high-maintenance properties, this should be done bi-weekly.

When should trimming services be done?

Because trimming controls the size and shape of your plants, it should be done more often than selective pruning.

For the typical homeowner, you should have a crew perform your landscape trimming service at least once every 2-3 months.

If your property is high-maintenance, meaning you have specially shaped shrubs, or a perfectly straight hedge, then trimming should be done at least once every 2 weeks.

What is the purpose of pruning and how is it done?

Pruning concerns the health of the bushes, trees, and shrubs. The purpose of pruning is to remove dead or dying branches. On fruit-bearing and flowering trees, this helps fruits and flowers to flourish.

When our crew prunes your landscaping greenery, we remove the dead or diseased branches to make way for re-growth. We also remove sagging limbs, injured branches, and limbs that compete for resources with the central trunk.

When are the best times to have your landscape plants pruned?

The most common rule, when it comes to pruning your landscape plants is to do it in winter while the plants are dormant. More specifically, your plants should be pruned towards late winter into early spring. The end of the dormancy period for plants has huge advantages for their growth after pruning.

  • There is a limited amount of time remaining before spring growth and the healing process.
  • You avoid specific diseases and pests during this time.
  • It provides easier sight because there is less foliage.

There are a few exceptions to the rule when it comes to pruning your property's plants, for example:

  • We prune fruit-bearing plants between February and April.
  • Early spring blooming shrubs should be pruned immediately after they have finished blooming.
