rules for pruning apply to hedge shrubs to encouraging dense growth from
top to bottom of the hedge. If the intention is to allow the hedge to grow
up for laying, you can just trim the side of the hedge and keep the top
level for appearance. Contact Nolasco-Inc. at 954-772-7394 or 954-974-0512.
overall objective of hedge trimming is to make the hedge as thick as possible and to
maximize the intervals between layering, which is a time consuming and
relatively expensive activity. There is a trade off between getting
the hedge tall again as quickly as possible and getting it to grow more
trimming mechanically or by hand, the direction of trimming should follow
that of the laying so that the hedges are trimmed with, rather than against,
lay of the hedge. This minimizes the damage to stems as hedges are
cut. If trimming mechanically, the equipment used must be capable of
cutting the re-growth cleanly, with minimum damage to the stems.
