I wouldn't consider myself an expert hedge trimmer by any means, but I'm no rookie. What I always do is first stand back and see how much needs trimmed and the desired shape or form I want to adhere to and make a mental picture of it for each bush or shrub. Also what I learned early on is do as was mentioned earlier and only take a little bit off....you can always take off more. Then after that step back and look at it and see how it compares to your mental picture you made earlier. After that just Practice, Practice, Practice by doing it.
