Some homeowners may believe that planting a hedge and/or some shrubs is a good way to add landscaping to their property without the level of care and maintenance required by flower beds or gardens. Just plant a few cedars along the property line and/or a few bushes in front of the house, give them a quick trimming every so often, and essentially leave them alone to otherwise fend for themselves.
Well, at least a part of that concept is correct; hedges and shrubs can indeed beautify a residential property – but only if they receive the time and attention they need to thrive.
Failure to properly maintain hedges and shrubs can leave them looking scraggly, scruffy, and faded/yellowed; this can give passersby the impression that the entire property, and by association the home, are unsightly and unkempt. Moreover, hedge trimming that is done incorrectly can actually cause permanent damage, leading to the inconvenience and cost of replacing these bushes or shrubs.
Appropriate and regular hedge trimming and shrub care is vital to ensuring that their growth and any respective blooms remain full, healthy, sturdy and appealing.
Therefore, although pruning and trimming hedges and shrubs are landscaping activities that can be done by home gardeners, it may be advisable to entrust such responsibilities to the professionals from DreamWorks Tree Services in order to ensure and achieve optimal results.
