The difference between trimming and pruning.
Trimming and pruning are very different but equally important to the growth of your landscape's plants and hedges. Trimming cleans them up and helps get rid of overgrown branches. Trimming is often referred to as giving your hedge a haircut. Pruning, however, deals with the health of the plant by selectively removing branches.
Trimming aids the bush in growing back thicker, greener, and healthier than before. This also reduces disease and insect infestation, while preventing overgrowth. Aesthetically speaking, trimming controls the shape and size of the plant.
During pruning, we remove diseased, vertically grown, and low-hanging branches. Pruning prevents loose or dead branches from breaking free. It is also essential for flowering or fruit-bearing plants.
When do we prune/trim your landscaping?
The time that pruning takes place depends on the type of plant that needs pruning, while trimming takes place as needed throughout the year. The majority of plants should be pruned during winter or early spring. Pruning your landscaping during the fall can stimulate growth, which actually can severely weaken the plant as it enters its dormancy period. Additionally, certain plants demand specific timing for their pruning sessions throughout the year.
- Early spring bloomers, such as lilacs, require pruning shortly after they finish blooming.
- Pruning deciduous shrubs should occur during the late winter.
- Some small trees and shrubs can be pruned between late winter and early spring before sap sets in, such as hydrangeas, juniper, and cherries.
- Prune trees that sap during the late winter, in the summer.
