    Today I'm going to do a Spring cleanup and she wants her shrubs really lowered. I have trimmed many,many shrubs in the past, but I think to lower the height I must trim 3 to 4 inches now and later some more but not all at once for fear of killing the plant or the shrubs really looking bad. Please advise on what is the correct call to make. The bushes are at least 5 to 6 feet tall and have a nice shape to them but she wants to really take the heighth away.

    What kind of shrub? How old is the shrub? Is it a flowering shrub? What is the diameter of main trunk? Is it a shade shrub? Is it a foundation shrub? You ask a question like how to do heart bypass without any info. Please understand that all arbor/nursery stock is not the same. Be a little more precise please.
