Trimming/ Cutting back Forsythia shrubs

Any suggestions on best way to trim and or cut back hard (low to the ground)
mature Forsythia shrubs? I have a customer who has several forsythia shrubs along a fence line and wants them cut down to a foot high. How should I go about this job without beating the heck out of my hedg:dizzy:e trimmers and also not taking too long to do the job?

Thanks for any advice

Thanks for the advice. The customer and I spoke about losing the bloom this season and he does not care. Will the Forsythia be able to come back over the next couple of years cutting them back so hard?
