    For trimming hedges and shrubs, etc...

    Can someone help me out with what info and how it's worded in your landscape maintenance agreement/contract.

    Thanks

    Shrub Pruning:

    Plant material will be pruned or trimmed to achieve the highest degree of health and appearance. Shrubs and bushes will be trimmed to within borders and a height that blends with the landscape. All debris will be removed at the time of pruning. Plant material requiring additional pruning will be done by request and at an additional charge.

    This is a copy of a copy I got from somebody a year ago or so. I used it to compose a letter and got the bid, moved a few words around but it worked good.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks Homer. I was going to post one that I made up, but that one put me to shame. LOL

    Pruning and trimming

    All shrubs shall be carefully pruned, thinned, pinched, and trimmed in a manner that will retain the natural growth characteristics of the plant throughout the year.

    Heres how mine reads:
    Typically we shear all shrubs following the existing shape. Structural pruning will be done upon request. Special requests are encouraged.
