Bushes and Trees

Bush and tree trimming depends on the specific type of bush or tree and personal taste. For example, azaleas are usually not trimmed at all, while most other shrubs are trimmed many times a year. Because pruning at the wrong time of year may keep a bush from blooming, make sure your lawn maintenance company customizes its pruning schedule to fit your shrub types. If you want your shrubs to look well kept, your lawn maintenance company probably needs to trim them six to eight times a year. Over-pruning a tree or a shrub increases the opportunity for insect and disease problems.
