For centuries hedges have been a feature of homes and large estates. They can be great privacy screens, garden features, borders, and even mazes (think Ashcombe Maze on the Mornington Peninsula!).
What turns a row of plants into a hedge is its regular pruning. When done well, hedge trimming results in thicker foliage and healthier plants.
Hedge Trimming Melbourne
Hedges thrive in Melbourne’s climate, and our Kingfisher Tree Services team are our city’s hedge trimming specialists. We have the experience and correct equipment (including a brush cutter hedge trimmer) to ensure your hedge is trimmed in a way that promotes it’s thickness, shape, and overall health.
Why is Hedge Pruning Necessary?
Naturally, the main objective of hedge pruning is shaping, but in the pruning process, we will also remove dead branches and any foliage that is being affected by diseases or is harbouring pests.
It is best to begin pruning your hedge to shape while the plants are very young so that as they mature they will grow in density as they take the desired shape.
Hedges as Fences
Many Melbourne residents and those living on small acreages are opting to plant hedges instead of fences, or along existing fences, because of the improved aesthetics they provide. While it is tempting to let your hedge plants take on initial height growth for privacy reasons, we encourage you to start your hedge trimming early to boost the plant’s thickness. When you do so, they will eventually provide better privacy and just look so much better.
