Benefits of Having Hedges

Often times when people think of hedges, they might think of them being a luxury item or just a showy part of their lawn. While there are obviously some very ornate hedges out there, they can also serve a purpose. For instance, they can create fencing that is both attractive but also environmentally friendly. Instead of just having a wall separating your property, hedging adds a beautiful addition to your green space..While it provides a barrier, it adds a natural look. If grown and cared for correctly, hedge fences can be just as effective as standard fences in protecting your property from unwanted animals, such as deer or dogs. Depending on the height, it can also serve as a privacy barrier to even the nosiest of neighbors.

Additionally, there is, of course, the aesthetic value to ornamental hedges. Nothing quite makes a statement like a sculpture that can be made by plants in your yard. Also, since it is a living, growing thing, the designs can be changed to fit your personality over time.

Types of Hedge Trimming

There are four major types of trimming to note. The first is fine pruning, which is for smaller branches and is mostly for the appearance of the hedge. Standard pruning is cutting of the weak branches for the purpose for improving the integrity of the plant. Hazard trimming is when there are safety concerns that are being addressed. Lastly, crown reduction trimming is done in the event of storm damage or if there is an acute problem with the hedges. Since they all serve a specific purpose, we will need to communicate with you beforehand to see what it is most appropriate for the job.
