    Depends on what equipment your gonna use?
    gas powered hedgers?elect hedgers,hand lops,hand shears? :blob3: How much are you going to take off 1'?.4"" ,2"? just new growth or what? :rolleyes: Are the shrubs together as a large hedge
    or separately planted?
    Watch out for hollys,take off too much and you expose the bare inner branches and it will look like crappola. :cool:

    I will only be removing the new growth for the most part .So bushes will need some shaping. It looks like someone may have started this about a mounth ago. :waving: She also ask how much it would be to keep them trim mounthly.
