Learn More About Our Hedge Trimming Services in the North Shore

Take a look below at some of the frequently asked questions that we often receive from our valued customers.

How do you properly trim a hedge?

To correctly trim an overgrown hedge, it is important to snip branches and limbs back that are inside the bush. To promote healthy growth, you should allow enough space for sunlight and air to pass through, into the hedge. Pruning the base is also key. To get a good guideline, we always position a rope or string across the bottom and top of the hedge to create a guideline. For professional hedge trimming in the North Shore, give G McColl Tree Services a call.

What time of year is best for trimming hedges?

We would recommend the late winter or early spring as a great time to cut back an overgrown hedge. If you are looking to maintain the shape and height, summer is potentially the best time to trim.

How far can you cut a hedge back?

In one single cut, it is possible to healthily cut back up to 50% of your hedge. However, it is recommended that we cut back your hedge in a staggered manner over 2 or more years. This can ensure that you do not lose greenery.

Does my Neighbour have to cut my side of his hedge?

When it comes to your neighbours cutting your shared hedge, if the boundary between your gardens is in the middle of the hedge, there is no law that requires them to cut their side. If they do not want to cut it, you may have to offer to pay or do it for them, with their permission, if you would like it to be cut.

Can a chainsaw be used to trim hedges?

A chainsaw can be used to trim hedges; however, this piece of a equipment is not as accurate as a made-for-purpose hedge trimmer.

What plants are good for hedgerows?

When choosing plants to create a hedge in your North Shore garden, there are lots of native Australian plants and foliage suited to Aussie climates that will help to create screening, divide a garden and give it flow, give you privacy from neighbours, and soften borders with green foliage.

Some of these hedge plants include:

  • Westringia
  • Mock orange blossom (also known as orange jasmine or murraya paniculata)
  • Hydrangea 
  • Camellia sasanqua
  • Lilly pilly
  • Leighton green
  • Japanese box hedge
  • English box hedge
  • Rosemary
  • Photinia

If you already have hedges planted but would like to see them thrive and, in some cases, produce flowers, our hedge trimming team can help to trim back your hedges, encouraging new growth and producing a more full, well-rounded and dense plant.
