The best hedge trimming services
Hedges are a common adornment in Kiwi homes and gardens, yet a well-pruned hedge truly stands out. They make gorgeous botanical alternatives to ordinary fencing, keeping out noise and wind and protecting your privacy. Keeping your hedge trimmed regularly is the best way to maintain its aesthetic value.
Most hedges require a decent trim two or three times a year. It can be a challenging and hazardous job if you don’t have the experience balancing hedge trimmers and ladders. Our garden maintenance team at Shorescape have the specialist skills and equipment to get the job done the way you want it.
With our help, your hedge will be the pristine stand out star in your neighbourhood.
Why choose hedge trimming North Shore
We understand how much beauty and value your property gets with a gorgeous hedge. At Shorescape, we know the ins and outs of various techniques that we can use to trim hedges. Whether your hedge requires the use of ladders, extendable equipment or ordinary shears, we have the skills to get the job done perfectly.
If your hedge is relatively new, it will need to be pruned with specialist care to encourage it to grow the way you want it to in a healthy way. Once your hedge retains its shape relatively well, you will only need to undergo occasional maintenance.
The time of year is also a crucial factor when the time comes to prune your hedges. Seasons can affect how well they grow and whether your hedge is home to any nesting birds. In general, summer and winter can be the best times to undergo hedge trimming on the North Shore.
Trimming your hedge two to three times a year will allow your hedge plenty of time to grow without it getting unruly. However, we are also happy to trim your hedges more regularly if you wish.
We offer the option of removing the hedge clippings for you. Alternatively, you can keep the trimmings to put in your compost.
How we trim hedges
Trimming a hedge straight might seem like an easy task but it actually requires a vast amount of expertise. No beginner should ever try to cut their hedge “by eye”. Our team at Shorescape always takes advantage of tools that can help guide and measure the line of the hedge.
When we trim your hedge, we will first remove the largest branches that stick out from your hedge. Then, we carry on with finer pruning – cutting smaller and smaller branches until the hedge has an even surface. It’s a lot like tree pruning, but with hedges, you can get more refined shapes.
Pruning is an important part of most gardening endeavours because it allows plants to grow while retaining a healthy and aesthetically pleasing shape. Depending on your hedge, our team can use any of the following equipment:
- Hand shears – great for fine details, especially for topiary. Another benefit of hand shears is they are the quietest tool.
- Pruning saw – perfect for large branches that cannot be cut with hand shears, pruning saws get the job done efficiently and effectively.
- Electric trimer – these are most effective when large hedge trimming is required.
We keep all our pruning tools sharp to ensure the best results. We also clean them when using them on multiple plants to avoid cross-contamination. Using these techniques, we facilitate the cleanliness and easy growth of your hedge.
Occasionally, hedges require fertiliser and water top-ups. At Shorescape, we also take particular care to watch out for nesting birds; this is a particularly important practice to help protect any native wildlife who might call your hedge home.
