Hedges and shrubs should be regularly trimmed for 3 main reasons:

Safety: With wild and unpredictable storms hitting Melbourne, keeping hedges and shrubs trimmed will help prevent broken branches from damaging property or causing injury.

Health: Hedge trimming can reduce disease and creepy crawly invasions, enhance blossoming and the overall health of the hedge by increasing air circulation and light penetration.

Aesthetics: Regular pruning encourages a uniform and dense appearance while maintaining hedges at a size appropriate to your landscape or yard. There is nothing better than a freshly trimmed hedge, it's like a haircut, for our soil friends and instantly boasts an image of a well-cared for property.
