    I Can Maintain Your Privets

Hedge, Privet & Bush Tips

  1. Always cut away any obviously dead, dying, damaged or diseased branches.
  2. If your bush is extremely thick and dense this limits the amount of light penetration, trim the outside to allow in more glorious sun light.
  3. After trimming don’t worry about leaving your bush looking bear and skeletal like, it will be back to lush in summer.
  4. If you have to cut back your privets & bushes, you only need to cut back most of the vegetation and outer branches once if you prune them as and when needed after.
  5. Don’t forget the food. If your bushes are looking pale and limp they will probably just be lacking nutrients. Choose a good quality feed and they will be back to colourful in no time.

Hedge Bush & Shrub Trimming & Thinning

Overgrown Privet Bush (Before)

Wild and furious is how most Sheffield hedges & privets grow. This is great when you first plant them as they are of size in no time. Before long they need regular thinning & trimming to keep them looking good and without imposing on your valuable garden space too much. Our example highlights just what happens when an untended privet is left to it’s own devices.

Privet Cutting Back (During)

It might not look great as I am cutting back this really thick, tall privet hedge. But come next year the greenery will be lovely again and the garden owner gains a small amount of space back.

All Finished Here

After a couple of months you can see the greenery is returning once more while retaining it’s new shape. If done regularly it is little work and will look wonderful all year round. As with many of my customers gardens I love popping round to quickly run round the hedges and grass as and when needed and would be happy to add yours to my gardeners list.

Bush & Shrub Pruning

Just look how beautiful this garden’s bushes & shrubs are after originally being cut back and then pruned for a summer. With beautiful colouring and shape this garden’s hedges are a pleasure to be among.

Privets Cut& Trimmed

Freshly shaped and trimmed front privets make the entrance to this property to rent much more inviting and easier to let. If you are a landlord and need your properties privets and bushes keeping in check get in touch.

Tree Cutting & Pruning

This small tree was taking up way too much walkway space and limiting access to the upper garden so a full cut back to the trunk was required for the bulk of the lower branches and a light pruning above.
