I general trim hedges and bushes 3 times spring summer and fall, for most I find it easier to keep a nice clean line if its done often, and they never looked trimmed its the look both my customers and I like.
Having said that, I totally agree with Kate and Leo - takes some time to id all your bushes on a particular property - cause there are bushes like lilacs that can be pretty shakey, if you cut them back too much they will take revenge and skip a year of bloom, I give them a week after the flowers have bloomed and wilted, then I am very selective. I learned this after cut 50% of the growth off my patch of lilacs it took me two years of begging before they fllowered again. LOL
