Shrub and Hedge Maintenance

Shrubs and Hedges may become unruly and unmanageable over time. Regular pruning and shearing may be necessary to maintain shape and size in any given space. The difference between shearing and pruning is determined by species and purpose. Pruning is used to keep the plants natural shape and structure, and to prevent insect infestation. Shrubs and trees such as rhododendron, azalea, holly, cyprus, and many others should be pruned naturally. Shearing produces a formal appearance with a dense outer shell of foliage with little growth on interior portions of the crown.  Species such as yew, boxwood, arborvitae, and sometimes hemlock are normally sheared into unnatural shapes for aesthetics and privacy.
