    i have a commerical building i am doing and the owner wants me to trim the holy bushes. the thing is, is that the holy bushes are about head high and he wants it about waist high, cause with it being tall it is blocking views to the building. i was wondering if i trim it that low, would it kill it or would it be ok

    Well, first we must assume that this is indeed a church, with holy bushes and all. Second, since they are holy bushes, you'd better be sure to wear gloves, could be a burning bush.

    If this doesnt make sense to you, consult a local bible, and a dictionary.

    It should be fine to trim it down halfway, or more. Won't look good for a while, make sure he understands this.....but it won't kill them. Don't do it in the middle of a rain-less stretch.

    Ya, I was going to say the same thing, but add that you might get talked to while trimming.

    God does use bushes to talk to people from time to time you know.
