Glorious orange and red berries and leaves in autumn, luxuriant green in summer, multihued blossoms in spring, and splendid chilly branches in winter, hedges make the change of the seasons a colorful experience for all to see and enjoy. Besides, they play a crucial role in the ecosystem by giving a home to different types of animals and providing them with protection from the weather and wind.
A hedge also protects the soil from strong gusts of wind, excessive heat and excessive evaporation. But to ensure that your privacy hedge remains green and thick, it needs to be regularly pruned and trimmed. Ensure to do this at least twice a year for the best of the results.
Hedge trimming by season
Trims that take place during the spring season involve giving your hedge a proper contour cut after the pruning process. In the summer season, all irregular growth of the leaves that come in light need to be fast cleared so as to keep the hedge in shape. While pruning and trimming the privacy hedge during the summer season, be sure to be careful and watchful for small animals and nesting birds that often make hedges their habitat. Just before the onset of cold season, ensure to remove the weak shoots again as these would compete for the available resources, for instance food and water, with the rest of the plants unnecessarily. During the winter season, you should make sure to carry out the first regeneration pruning.
