Shrub and bush trimming services involve removing any dead or damaged branches and stems from your shrubs, bushes, and other greenery. At Airtasker, you can easily find a shrub trimming service near you. Our Taskers can inspect your shrub beforehand and prepare the right equipment and gear before diving into the trimming work. They can also help clean up your property once the service is complete. For a better idea of what our shrub trimming service entails, here are more details:
Before starting any trimming job, your Tasker first inspects the current condition of your shrubs and bushes. It involves taking note of any areas with more overgrowth and making sure that no stray animals such as cats, possums, and squirrels are left hiding in your greenery. The next step includes laying a tarpaulin or groundsheet around the entire shrub. Doing so makes cleaning up after much easier as it catches any branches, leaves, or other debris that fall to the ground during the trimming work.
Your Tasker also prepares the proper tools and equipment such as hedge trimmers, chainsaws, hedge shears, and rubbish bags and bins. Since a bush trimming service carries certain risks, your Tasker also dons protective clothing before starting the work. This helps avoid any major or minor accidents such as bruises, cuts, scrapes, and eye and impact injuries.
When left to grow on their own, shrubs and bushes can become out of control and leave an unsightly mess in your garden or lawn. Trimming helps you not only to avoid this but to improve the overall size and shape of your bush. Your Tasker starts your tree and bush trimming service by cutting away along the top while keeping the shrub level even. The base of your shrub must always be wider than the top to let the sun's rays penetrate your entire shrub.
Your Tasker then continues trimming with smooth, even strokes to keep the sides balanced and avoid over trimming. They remove diseased and damaged branches to retain the plant's health and check your entire shrub for early signs of pest damage. The last step involves your Tasker inspecting your bush from a distance and removing any remaining branches that look out of place.
After the trimming work, your Tasker cleans your property from top to bottom. The tarpaulin placed underneath your bush can catch most bush clippings, trimmings, and other debris but any branches and stems that have flown away to other areas in your property are gathered and placed in the proper rubbish bins.
You can also ask your Tasker to conduct a complete garden clearance if you have any remaining dirt and debris that can obstruct your paths and walkways. They can even mow your lawn, remove weeds from your other greenery, and do other garden tidy up tasks at your request.
