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

Absolutly, they will come in tighter and fuller. They bloom on the old wood so you will get blooms next season. You can't kill Forsythia if you tried. Well maybe if you really tried....
