Trimming of formal hedges

These hedges should be trimmed regularly to prevent their width exceeding 60cm. They require slight tapering on both sides so that the base is wider than the top and light can reach the bottom of the hedge. The Hedge Trimming Guys in District of Columbia will cut the hedge to a batter properly so that you have a symmetrical hedge.

Maintenance of trimming

Clip to the desired shape one or three times during summer, until late August, when trimming should cease to reduce the risk of bare patches. The tools to use include secateurs or hand shears for broad-leaved evergreens such as bay. You should stop the leading shoot at the desired height and one should avoid hard pruning as most conifers will not re-grow from old wood.

Tips to follow when trimming formal hedges

* To cut straight and to crisp the edges by the eye can be difficult and therefore it is good to make use of a taut horizontal string tied between two stout canes to act as a guide to cut the top of the hedge level. Sticks that are pushed to the ground help with vertical lines.

* To shape the top of the hedge you are trimming, cut a template of the shape required from a plywood, then place the template on the hedge and cut following the line of the template and then move along as you go on with the trimming.

* If you are using shears, make sure that the top of the hedge is cut level and flat by keeping the blades of the shears parallel to the line of the hedge.

*When using a hedge trimmer, keep the blade parallel to the hedge and use a wide sweeping action that is working from the bottom of the hedge upwards so that the foliage falls away as you proceed with the trimming.
