What do hedge trimming services include?

Hedge trimming services involve removing and cutting away any diseased and overgrown stems and branches from your hedges. The purpose of hedge trimming is to maintain the health of your hedge and allow for new growth. Once you book a hedge trimming service near you, your trimming specialist can handle the entire process so you won't have to lift a finger.

From inspecting your hedge's current condition and preparing the right gear to cutting away any overgrowth and cleaning up the area after, you can leave all your hedge cutting needs to Airtasker. For a better idea of our tree and hedge cutting services, here are more details:

Pre-trimming preparation

Your Tasker first inspects your hedge's current state before trimming. It involves checking for any areas that need more maintenance, ensuring that no animals, including cats, possums, and bird nests, are left in your hedge. The preparation also includes and placing a groundsheet or tarpaulin beneath your hedge for easier catching of branches, stems, and other debris.

Your Tasker prepares the right tools and equipment for easy access such as hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, brooms, rubbish bags, and heavy-duty garden waste bins. Since trimming hedges pose a lot of risks, your Tasker also suits up with protective clothing. Doing so protects them from any cuts, scratches, bruises from flying branches, and getting any dust or debris into their eyes.

Hedge trimming

Your hedge trimming starts with your Tasker cutting away your hedge with a hedge cutter in controlled, sweeping motions. Usually, the top is cut in a more narrow line compared to the base to let maximum sunlight reach your hedge and enable easier maintenance as it grows. To get uniform lines, your Tasker cuts your hedge from the ground up with a smooth, gliding back and forth motion.

Branches are closely cut to the nodes or truck to avoid any pests or diseases. Once all sides of your hedge are trimmed, your Tasker takes a few steps back to inspect it from a distance. If touch-ups are necessary, your Tasker cuts away any remaining stems and branches while looking out for any uneven dips or cut-outs.

Post-trimming cleanup

Once you and your Tasker are satisfied with your trimmed hedge, it's time to clean the area from any remaining dirt and debris. The groundsheet or tarpaulin placed beneath your hedge can easily catch most hedge clippings. Also, any leftover branches or stems that have flown away throughout your property are collected and put in the proper waste bins. 

Your Tasker also clears away any remaining items from your paths and walkways that can obstruct and cause potential accidents. Lastly, your Tasker checks your hedge's condition after trimming. To speed up growth, your Tasker can also add fertiliser or mulch at your request.
