Hedge And Shrub Trimming, Pruning And Reduction To Promote Healthy Growth And Keep Maintained
Hedge trimming is one of the essential skills every gardener should have but due to the fact that it requires a lot of precision some professional assistance from HomeMates would be really useful. With our hedge cutting and trimming services we not only maintain your gardens appearance, but we remove and dispose of all remains after each hedge cutting job. After this, Tree Trimming maintenance trimming is carried out, usually once a year for informal hedges and twice a year for formal hedges.
We always do pre-checks before embarking on hedge cutting to ensure that no obvious wildlife habitats will be disturbed and we adhere to all the laws and guidelines that are in place to protect our furred and feathered friends. Hand-held hedge shears are fine for smaller hedges, but for large hedges you’ll probably find it easier to use an electric or petrol hedge trimmer.
Next, it is important to trim hedges so that the bottom of the hedge is wider than the top. There are three basic types of hedge trimmers: gas-powered, corded electric and battery-powered cordless. Regular mulching will also help retain water around the roots of the hedge on drier soils.
Our hedge cutting service will add that finishing touch and make a garden look thoroughly well cared for. For hedge trimming, you can use manual hedge shears or a power hedge trimmer It is much easier to get an even cut with a power model because the blade is longer (20 to 24 inches for power trimmers versus 8 to 12 inches for hand shears).
A hedge trimmer with extended reach and a pivoting cutting head simplifies trimming tall hedges and shrubs as well as hard-to-reach areas of the plant. Don’t remove more than a year’s growth at a time unless you are rehabbing an old hedge. In case you have to deal with a hedge that is above your height, opt for an angled cutter bar.
