Shrub Trimming

Give your shrubbery that crisp, professional appeal! Nikkel Lawn Care offers shrub trimming and clipping services.

Pruning your shrubs promotes healthy growth and lush foliage on your plants. 

Shrub trimming is cutting off the tips of branches to clean up the overall appearance of a plant. This landscaping service involves using power hedge trimmers to skim the tops and sides of shrubs so they look neat and manicured. For example, if your property has a hedge row of shrubs, shearing off the tops and sides will maintain a uniform, ‘green fence’ look. 

Trimming can involve clipping off an inch or two of unruly growth for species like boxwood, or aggressively trimming down a plant a fraction of its size. To know what is right for your specific shrub varieties, it is best to consult with a knowledgeable professional from Nikkel Lawn Care.

Why do I need shrub pruning?

Your trees are some of the most valuable assets on your property. In addition to their beauty and the shade they give your land, they take a long time to grow. Providing proper care and maintenance is crucial to their longevity. Our team of pruning experts can help you make sure that your trees stay strong and healthy.

Benefits of shrub pruning:

  1. It increases their lifespan.
  2. Your landscape's appearance is improved.
  3. Pruning reduces the likelihood of disease.
  4. Growth is increased by removing blocks to sunlight. 
  5. It lowers the chance of property damage in a wind storm.
  6. It helps trees stay structurally sound.

How often do shrubs need to be trimmed?

Some landscape companies might sell you shrub trimming services with every maintenance visit. Unfortunately, this way you could end up spending more money than is necessary. In fact during the cooler season in Virginia, you might not need to trim shrubs at all. Plants are still growing, but not at a rapid pace that calls for constant maintenance. 

Ultimately, weather conditions and the type of shrubs you have will dictate how often they need to be trimmed.

What mistakes do most landscaping companies make concerning trimming and pruning?

One common shrub pruning error is to concentrate solely on the shrub’s exterior surface. Depriving the inner structure of enough light for photosynthesis, can lead to “hollow shrub” syndrome and a much shorter lifespan.
