Keep the area of your land
March 9th, 2021
Regular maintenance helps to keep your hedge to a reasonable size, so that it does not take over your yard space. A hedge has green growth on its outer layer only, with bare branches on the inside, and can only be trimmed back so far without exposing those interior branches. If you allow your hedge to grow shaggy, the threshold to where it can safely be trimmed back without causing damage to the hedge increases in size, and can infringe on space around pools, decks, and precious yard space. Trimming your hedge from a young age will help keep it to a desirable size.
