OUR HEDGE TRIMMING & PRUNING SERVICES IN CAIRNS

CONSIDERING A HEDGE CUTTING SERVICE?

Hedge cutting is worth considering. You have the option of doing it yourself (DIY) or hiring professional contractors to cut your hedge. The service is important because of many reasons. It’s popular with property owners who want clearly defined exterior boundaries with their neighbours. The success of any hedging project depends on the amount and quality of planning involved. The equipment used for this work also plays a crucial role in its success.

Whether you do it alone or hire a professional, the work will need these tools:

  1. Shears
  2. Ladders
  3. Hedge trimmer (petrol or electric)
  4. Cordless cutter

It’s important to know the right time for this project. Clipping is recommended immediately after you plant. Afterward, you would have to keep trimming or cutting it at least twice each year – spring and summer. Some species are too aggressive. For these, it’s advisable to do the trimming at least twice or thrice a year, especially during the growing season. It’s important to cut from a vantage point that gives you the perfect view of your progress.

Hedging, like mowing your lawn, has many benefits, which include the following:

  • It enhances safety
  • It’s environmental friendly
  • It promotes plant health
  • Adds value to the property
  • Improves the property’s curb appeal
  • It’s perfect for improving structure and stability of the bushes
  • It’s an ideal solution for taming gardens that grow wildly

THE BENEFITS OF USING A PROFESSIONAL

DIY is fine. It saves you money and allows you the opportunity to improve your skills. However, it does not compare to professional hedging in by any means. Yes, you pay more to have your work completed by an experienced professional. But, that’s probably the only downside. Professional services leave you with bushes that are done properly, thus more beautiful compared to the bland walls, artificial structures, and unsightly fences.

Professionally trimmed gardens are worth the money. You’re guaranteed to increase the curb appeal of your property manifold. These services guarantee you a garden that is attractive to look at without sacrificing your need for privacy. Furthermore, professionals also take care of the green wastes produced after each booking. 

Needless to say plants come in different varieties. Each variety has unique characteristics. Each variety requires a different way of being trimmed. There’s a possibility that you would use the same approach with all varieties; thus, leaving you with poorly trimmed hedges. A professional, on the other hand, knows what it takes to trim each different variety. The professional knows and uses more than one technique to leave your property with a well-maintained garden.

Using specialised equipment is essential doing completing the job the first time. With well-maintained and sharp tools, contractors guarantee you more. Furthermore, the tools don’t destroy your garden. If anything, these tools trim the hedges at the right height to give them a chance of growing healthy and strong within no time.

FORMAL VS. INFORMAL HEDGES

All of them belong belong in three main categories, which are:

  1. Formal
  2. Semi-formal
  3. Informal

Formal style is not only neatly trimmed, but also symmetrically shaped. In fact, they are among the most common from the aforementioned three categories. Often they are created using one species. They have a height of between 1ft and 6ft. Several of these varieties are also taller than 6ft. Examples include boxwoods, hemlock, yew, and holly. 

On the other hand, informal styles refer to those which are rigid and geometric-shaped. They tend to be more casual. They are not uniformly trimmed. Parts of these might be short while the rest is tall. It’s a perfect style in a cottage or natural gardens. The emphasis here is on a loose form. These comprise a mix of various plants. Creating informal ones isn’t hard as you only have to mix several different plants. It’s possible to create informal hedges from:

  • Lavender
  • Santolina
  • Junipers
  • Weigela
  • Oleander
  • Photinia
  • Osmanthus

For their part, semi-informal are a cross between formal and informal. It’s common to find them composed of a variety of different plants or a single species. The main difference with the other categories is the large leaves, which stand out separately. The leaves are not part of a huge mass. Overall, the plant form associated with semi-informal is less rigid. Examples of these include firethorn, photinia, and English laurel.

HOW TO DO YOUR OWN MAINTENANCE

Hedges are plants just like any other. Therefore, they need everything that other plants need. They need to be watered and fed. Importantly, they also need pruning and regular maintenance to keep them in excellent shape and attractive. Pruning helps to promote healthy growth. Well-maintained gardens are a beautiful sight. If you’re going to surround your property with screening plants, then you better learn how to maintain them, so they continue looking pristine.

It’s fine to shear but only if you know how to do it. One of the worst mistakes you can make is opting to shear without first pruning them by hand. Pruning by hand ensures that you surround your property with a garden that grows well because they receive proper sunlight. Invest in some bypass hand pruners. Use them at each shearing to create space for air and light to be well distributed throughout the hedges.

Secondly, learn to prune at the right time. Late winter is the perfect time for this sort of work as the plants are not only dormant but also yet to produce buds. Next, shape them correctly. The best shape is one in which the top is narrower compared to the bottom. Your goal, therefore, is to confirm that the bottom is and remains wider. A V-shaped hedge is bad; an A-shaped one is the best. Do this, and you will have healthy and beautiful gardens surrounding your property.
