Why prune and trim?

The pruning and trimming reasoning is two-fold;

  1. Retading the growth and keeping the plant at the desired size and shape.
  2. Encourage regrowth by letting light penetrate to the inner folaige leading to stronger growth.

Of course, other reasons could be that the hedge has just become too large and overgrown, or the shrub has began blocking your windows. Maybe the bush is casting too much shade on other nearby plants. Pruning and trimming bushes could even encourage new growth on old plants that arent growing great.

Depending on the size type and requirments, various techniques and tools can be utilised to achieve the desired outcome. From selectivly pruning branches with secatures to a hard reduction with powered trimmers, or even chainsaws.
