Top Hedge Trimming related questions

The best time to get your hedges trimmed depends on the type of hedge you have. Newly planted ones need more attentive care during the first two years with regular trimming, allowing for healthy growth. Older hedges, meanwhile, need trimming about twice a year. You can have it done once during the onset of spring and then during the start of the summer season.
How long it takes to trim hedges will depend on the type and size or your hedge and the amount of work required. Most trimmings are completed within the day, with the exact time varying depending on how much or how little stray branches and stems need to be cut away. If you want to know how long your service will take, you can ask your Tasker, and they'll be happy to go over the job with you.
Most garden hedges require trimmings on a bi-annual basis. Trimming and cutting dead stems and branches twice a year helps your hedge reach full growth and makes it easy to achieve a neat and well-kept appearance. However, if they have rapidly grown plants such as leylandii, cherry basil, or privet, you may need anywhere between four to six trimmings per season.
A hedge that is located right on the boundary line becomes the joint responsibility of both property owners. Both owners must coordinate with each other and agree on the hedge trimming work set to be done. In principle, if you want to have a hedge cut that's bordering your neighbour's property, you must first secure your neighbour's approval before proceeding with the hedge trimming work.
Similar to plants and trees, hedges are not immune to diseases and pests. Some of the most common ones to watch out for include myrtle rust, psyllids, and aphids. Myrtle rust is an airborne fungus that can appear as yellow powdery spots on leaves while psyllids are insects that suck the sap on Lilly pillies leading to damaged and spoiled leaves. Aphids, on the other hand, feed on most plants and trees and can be spotted through browning leaves.
If you need help mowing your lawn or watering your plants, we have gardeners who can help you out. You can also book a grass cutting service if you're looking for a more specialised task. Aside from helping you find hedge trimming near you, you can book a tree maintenance service to prune your trees, and if you want a complete refurbishment of your garden or lawn, we have skilled landscapers who'll be happy to work with you as well.

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.
