    Nice trimming. How long did it take you to trim one of those spiral trimmed evergreen bushes? Whta did you use to trim the spiral bushes.

    I don't know how long on the spirals...

    I billed them for 4hrs, theres some Russian Olive trees I trimmed as well you don't see

    For the shrubs I just used my Stihl HS80

    nice work.
    i personally never liked trimming, but i always like to see the dramatic difference afterwards.

    what are those 2 small yellowish bushes? its hard to tell the leaf texture from the photo.

    Thanks...

    The yellow shrubs are "Gold Mound Spirea"

    I personally like the trimming and it's something to do this time of the year when the lawns start to dry up.

    i should rephrase my thoughts.. i hate the clean/up after the trimming :waving: blowing out over gravel/mulch beds.. where its too cluttered to put down a tarp. i usally try to trim and mulch houses on the same day. alot easier with the clean/up.

    Are the spiral trees tough to trim? There's not many in our area... I'd like to give it a go!
