Hedge pruning and trimming

Shaping with our cutting-hedge technology

Unless you're a professional, trimming hedges is a tough gig. By using experience, a little bit of maths, and top-notch tools, we'll whip your shrubs into shape.

Just like with trees, regular pruning and trimming back dying or infected twigs and branches will improve the health of your hedges. And we'll thin the tops and sides, so your hedges look their best.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between pruning and trimming?

When you trim a hedge, you're usually just cutting back the foliage to keep it in shape. When you prune a hedge, you cut away dead or dying branches to prevent overgrowth or damage.

How often do I need to get my hedges trimmed?

Hire a professional to trim your hedges regularly. The question 'how often?' depends on how large you want your hedge to grow and what kind of plant it is. Some hedges grow faster in warmer climates or damp conditions, while others thrive in colder weather.

Do you bring your own tools when trimming hedges?

Yes. Our experienced staff will bring any required machinery and tools with them to any job they carry out.

What kind of diseases and pests can affect my hedges?

Just like other trees and plants, hedges are susceptible to disease and pests. And, unfortunately, once one section of your hedge is affected, the problem spreads very quickly. Keep an eye out for:

  • Myrtle Rust: An air-borne fungus which usually affects popular hedges like Lilly Pillies and Callistemons. Appears as purple pustules followed by yellow powder spots on the leaves.
  • Lilly Pilly Psyllid: A sap-sucking insect which feeds on Lilly Pillies. The hedge will produce disfigured leaves as a response.
  • Aphids: Attracted to the sap on most plants and trees. Signs of an aphid infestation include curled or browning leaves, unusual leaf drop, or stunted growth.
