Trimming & Pruning Services
We provide professional trimming and pruning services for your landscaping bushes, hedges, shrubs, and small trees in the Forest Hill, Bel Air, and Abingdon, MD areas.
Pruning and trimming are fundamental parts of your landscape’s health, beauty, and longevity. With the changing seasons, we have in the Forest Hill, Bel Air and Abingdon areas, trimming and pruning should be done at certain times of the year, based on the type of plants, shrubs, and flowers you have. Though similar, trimming and pruning are not the same thing.
The two are often used interchangeably, however, trimming and pruning serve two distinct and important purposes. Trimming helps shape to your plants and maintain their ideal size within your landscape design. This is ideal for plants like the box hedges and usually involves trimming the ends of all the plants’ branches.
Pruning is a more selective process. By strategically removing branches throughout the plant, pruning promotes growth, encourages lush greenery and larger fruit, and helps avoid the spread of disease by preemptively removing any dead or diseased branches. It also creates better air circulation and light for your plants and your overall landscape.
The ideal time to prune and trim your plants will vary based on the type of plants you have. For example, most deciduous plants that don’t bloom should be pruned and trimmed before the start of the growing season, in late March or early April. For plants that do produce blooms, pruning after blooming has occurred is the best approach.
The safest route is to hire our team of professionals. We’ll see what types of plants you have and recommend the best time to trim and prune, resulting in healthier, thicker growth.
