    Professional Garden Maintenance

    A lot can be said about the proper trimming technique but in brief, the hedges should be trimmed from the bottom to the top using appropriate equipment. The term “appropriate equipment” itself can be pretty tricky as various trimmers are used for the hedges that differ in size, height and maintenance requirements. The chest – high hedges can easily be handled with a trimmer that has double – sided blades, which reduces the time for trimming.

    In case you have to deal with a hedge that is above your height, opt for an angled cutter bar.
