    Yep, another bush trimming thread. This is the job I did today. I was slated to trim the whole yard later this week, but she was cited by the city for blocking the sidewalk. Real pain in the butt with all the thorns.

    Nice job, man. It takes a good eye to trim hedges well.

    Not that I'm the expert Bush Trimmer...

    But when you prune hedges, try to slope them outward as you go down. Being wider at the bottoms lets those branches get some sun. Other wise, the bottom will start to die off over time.;)

    Ain't it funny how different people look at shrubs and say they like it or they don't like it. The "bigger at the top" look does seem to work in this case. I think it looks good. The important thing is, how does the customer like it?

    That is a huge change of what they had before. How long did it take you to do that section of bushes/

    Boy, I've never heard of that. Usually people want bushes that slope the other way, in from top to bottom.

    The whole job took me about 3 hours, start to finish, including cleanup. By myself.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, btw.
