Shurb and Hedge Trimming
Most of us rightly think of lawns first when it comes to judging a yard's neatness and the care that's taken of it but few gardens, private or public, consist purely of grass with no shrubs or hedges and since shrubs and hedges typically form the borders and give lawns shape it makes a world of difference to have them professionally trimmed. Nor is it just about the appearance of your shrubs and hedges. Our trimming services don't just make everything look neat and tidy they also take care of the plants themselves to optimize healthy growth and avoid dead areas. That's a job for the pros because every different hedging plant is different.
Some plants used in hedges, cedar for example, will not regenerate new growth from old wood so one careless cut in the wrong place and you have a gap that will never grow back. Why take the risk? Call on the professionals from Anchorage Lawn Care Pros.
Trimming and Shaping
Hedge shaping doesn't have to mean the elaborate topiary you see in ornamental gardens, it can be as simple yet satisfying as creating a perfect box hedge or shaping softer curved hedges to better fit with the contours of your yard. Trimming and shaping are services we perform with pride and precision so that your hedges are trimmed just enough to ensure healthy growth while keeping that perfectly manicured appearance that bring joy to your family and jealousy for the neighbors.
We offer dedicated weed removal services but it's worth noting that weeding is also a standard part of our shrub trimming because the effect of your shrub plantations will be severely reduced if they become compromised by unwanted guests. We can do that with power tools but in many delicate shrubberies this comes back to good old fashioned weeding by hand.
Frequency and Full Package
The more often you trim a hedge the more dense and well shaped it will be so the frequency of hedge trimming depends on the type of hedge as well as its condition and the effect you want to create. Let us take a look at the type and size of your hedges, as well as how visible they are, and help hit on the perfect frequency for your yard and your budget. Shrubberies likewise need different amounts of care depending on the plants involved and how ornamental they are so we would like to take a look as part of our quote. Whatever plants you have you may want to consider one of our full care packages that combines shrub and hedge care with lawn mowing.
Time of Year
Different hedges and shrubs need caring for at different times of the year. Hedges grown purely for their leaves can be trimmed just once or twice a year and while they are not as picky about timing as those that are grown for their flowers there are still some hedges that need to be trimmed just before winter dormancy and others that need time to grow back a little before cold weather.
