We recommend using our hedge trimming services in Melbourne or wherever you are in Australia early in the life of your hedge to ensure that it is in the best shape and condition for long term growth. The trimming and shaping of hedges and shrubs should be a central part of how you care for your garden. One of the common mistakes made by hedge owners is infrequent watering and pruning.

Hedge Trimming FAQs
How much does hedge trimming cost?

As such it can require different tools, different sized teams and different processes for each hedging job. Depending on the size of the hedge and the difficulty of the work, hedging can cost anywhere up to $1500 per job.

When is the optimal time of year to trim hedges?
Our team of gardeners advise that late winter is the optimal time of year for any significant trimming of most garden varieties of hedges. This is to allow the pruning process to take place before the buds on the plants have had the chance to bloom. By trimming and shaping your hedge before the buds have opened, you conserve the plant’s energy for blossoming only those parts of the plant that you wish to keep. While the time of year is important for any large pruning and shaping work, minor trimming and maintenance can occur any time of year to help improve the look and health of your hedges.
What is the best way to trim a hedge?
Distinct from pruning trees, there are a number of factors to consider in order to get the optimal result from trimming hedges on your property. The first is the tools you use for the job: hedge clippers or power trimmers are highly recommended. These specially-designed hedge tools enable a cleaner and more consistent cut than shears or garden scissors. The next factor to consider is shape. A proper service should result in the bottom of the hedge being wider than the top to allow light to reach the bottom branches and plants. The final factor to keep in mind is density. The more dense the branches and plants are, the less sunlight will be able to get through. In order to help your tree look good and grow well, make sure you reduce the density to allow air and sunlight through.
