Shrubs, bushes and hedges are often overlooked and undervalued compared to the colorful plants and flowers in your landscape. However, your trees and shrubs offer numerous benefits. They can enhance your home’s curb appeal, provide natural privacy screens, and be an attractive complement to lawns, gardens and hardscapes.
Trees and shrubs, however, must be maintained. This is done through trimming or pruning services. Unfortunately, when trees and shrubs becomes overgrown and misshapen, there is a notable negative impact on the appearance and value of your home.
Trimming your trees and shrubs allows them to benefit your landscape instead of ruin it. While it may seem like cutting away branches is harming the plant or restricting it’s potential, pruning actually enables it to thrive and increases its life cycles. Trimming or pruning must be performed with the right tools and with the appropriate technique. Each hedge, bush or tree may demand a specific pruning approach. In addition, there is also a correct time to prune, from the time of day to the month of the year. Trimming without proper knowledge can cause damage to the plant and sabotage your landscape design.
The most obvious benefit of trimming your trees and bushes, however, is aesthetics. Trimming provides a polished and manicured look for your overall landscape. It can prevent these plants from growing into areas of your yard where they are unwanted or where they could cause property damage. For example, an overgrown tree can obstruct your driveway or shade a section of flowers that need direct sunlight.
