Why Hedge Trimming?

Hedges are not only decorative elements in your landscape but also serve practical purposes such as privacy screening and property delineation. Regular hedge trimming is essential to maintain their shape, encourage healthy growth, and prevent them from becoming unruly. Our hedge trimming services at B&H Lawn Care will ensure your hedges look neat, well-groomed, and enhance the overall aesthetic of your West Michigan property.
How often should I trim my hedges?
The frequency of hedge trimming depends on the growth rate and desired shape of your hedges. In general, it is recommended to trim hedges at least once or twice a year. However, fast-growing hedges may require more frequent trimming to maintain their desired form. Our experts at B&H Lawn Care can assess your hedges and recommend a trimming schedule that suits their specific needs.
Can I trim my hedges myself, or should I hire professionals?
While it is possible to trim hedges yourself, hiring professionals like B&H Lawn Care offers several advantages. Our team has the knowledge and experience to execute precise and uniform trimming, ensuring your hedges look their best. We also have the proper equipment to handle different hedge types safely. Additionally, hiring professionals saves you time and effort, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your landscape.
When is the best time to trim my hedges?
The ideal time for hedge trimming depends on the specific species and growth habits of your hedges. As a general guideline, it is best to trim hedges during their dormant period or just before their growth phase begins. For most hedges in West Michigan, early spring or late winter is an optimal time for trimming. However, our experts will consider the unique characteristics of your hedges and recommend the best timing during our assessment.
Will trimming my hedges stimulate new growth?
Yes, regular and proper hedge trimming promotes healthy growth. Trimming removes dead or diseased branches and encourages new shoots to sprout, leading to denser and more vibrant hedges. It is important to trim hedges correctly, following the natural growth patterns and avoiding excessive pruning that could harm the plant. Our skilled technicians at B&H Lawn Care have the expertise to provide precise trimming that stimulates optimal growth.
How can I maintain the shape of my hedges between trimmings?
Maintaining the shape of your hedges between trimmings requires light maintenance. Regularly inspect your hedges and use handheld hedge shears or hedge clippers to remove any stray or overgrown branches. Be cautious not to remove too much foliage, as it can affect the overall health of the hedge. If you’re unsure or prefer professional maintenance, B&H Lawn Care offers maintenance packages that include periodic touch-ups to keep your hedges looking pristine.
