Top Shrub & Bush Trimming related questions

The best time for a shrub and bush trimming depends on the type of plant you have. Flowering shrubs that bloom in early spring can be trimmed right away after they bloom while those that blossom during summer should be done during winter or the early stages of spring. Non-flowering plants, on the other hand, can be trimmed right after new growth has completely developed.
How long it takes to trim shrubs and bushes all boils down to the size of your shrub and the amount of work required. Most shrubs and bushes can be cut away within a day. The exact time can vary depending on how many deceased or damaged branches and stems need to be removed. If you need a shrub removal near you that's quick and safe, you can hire a Tasker, and they'll happily go over the job with you.
Proper care for your shrubs and bushes can highly encourage their growth and overall health. The most important tip is to water them once a week while checking that the soil has completely absorbed the water. Water provides essential nutrients for your shrubs to survive and thrive. You should also regularly inspect your shrubs for any signs of pests and diseases and have them removed as soon as possible once you notice any damage.
How often you need to trim your shrubs and bushes generally depends on the type and species of your greenery. Most shrubs such as evergreens require trimming twice or thrice a year between May to September while rapidly-growing conifers such as privet and leylandii need more regular cutting throughout the year. If you find you're having a hard time keeping track, you can hire a Tasker for a shrub removal service near you to make things easier.
Yes, they can! If you have a conflict in schedule, that's no problem. You can still book reliable tree and bush trimming near you. Our Taskers can readily trim your shrubs and bushes even without your physical presence as long as they have your approval beforehand. Don't forget to let your Tasker know as well in case you have any specific requests such as removing particular shrubs or trimming only a particular section of your garden.
Airtasker is a great place to outsource all kinds of garden-related tasks. Aside from your garden hedge trimming, you can also book a tree removal in case you have overgrown trees that are getting too close to power lines or obstructing your walkways. We also have Taskers who can help you with all your soil removal needs so you can get your excess soil cleared and removed right away from your property.

What do shrub and bush trimming services include?

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:

Pre-Trimming Preparation

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.

Shrub and bush trimming

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.

Post-trimming cleanup

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.
