By keeping your yard tidy, pruning maintains your home’s curb appeal. It stops plant growth near your foundation and roof, warding off pricey repairs (up to $4,000) down the line. Pruning also discourages vermin from building nests in your shrubbery. Prune regularly in summer and fall to keep your yard and home spic, span, and safe.
Wondering how to trim those overgrown hedges? We'll show you how to prune all hedges and shrubs in and around your yard to maintain curb appeal and avoid repairs.
For big jobs:
Cut back areas where your hedges are overgrown, unshapely, or extending onto your neighbor’s property. Clear areas where greenery is encroaching on your home’s foundation and/or roof as well as near sidewalks or your driveway. You can plan on pruning yourself or hiring a landscaper. If you go the DIY route, work in the morning or evening to avoid summer sun and midday heat.
