Gardening Tips : How to Trim a Shrub

I’m Bill Elzey with Showplace Lawns. Let’s
talk a little bit about pruning an evergreen shrub. Any time you’re running power equipment,
as we will do here, we will use a power shrub trimmer, you want to use safety glasses to
protect your eyes, first and foremost. Second of all, earmuffs or earplugs that will fit. best commercial hedge trimmer
Definitely want to use some sort of earplug or earmuff to protect your hearing, safety
glasses to protect your eyes. What we’re going to do, we want to take a little bit off the
top. And then we want to come down the side, and across the front, and down the other side.
Now, when pruning a shrub, you want to make sure that the bottom sticks out just a little
more than the top does, the reason being, that allows for sunlight to get to the bottom
easier that if it was squared off and back underneath. The other thing is as you go across,
down the side, and across the front, when you get a corner, you want to 45 the corners.
Then you want to 45 the edge across the tops. And that will give you that pruned look.
