Planting Shrubs and Hedges on Your Property

If you're looking to improve your property's overall appearance and value, planting a few shrubs or a hedge could be an excellent investment. While shrubs add to your lawn's overall aesthetic, they can also provide a natural habitat for wildlife. Hedges can provide both these advantages while also working to increase your privacy and property security. Many home or business owners opt to plant a hedge over a traditional fence because of its organic appearance and ability to reduce noise pollution.

If you believe hedges or shrubs would be a good addition for your property, it's always best to consult with the pros. Our company is a fully accredited and insured local business with a reputation for landscaping excellence. We hold numerous certifications, many accolades, and are proud registered members of various local organizations, such as the Ohio Landscape Association and the Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association.

The Pro Landscapers

Here to Help with Your Shrubs, Hedges, and Bushes

If you have ever attempted taking care of your shrubs and hedges on your own, you will likely have noticed it is a deceivingly difficult task. It is a job full of forearm scratches, frustrated grunting, and uneven, and sometimes incomplete results. When it is done right, shrubs and hedges can be a handsome addition to any property. They can line a property's border or stand-alone and flourish amid the landscape. Nicely maintained shrubs are always an exciting thing to behold, but they are difficult to manage.

Pruning and maintaining the shrubs and hedges on your property is the key to their beauty. If you think that your shrubs are growing unruly, call %COMPANY. Throughout the years, we have made our name on our excellent hedge trimming service. Taking care of the shrubs and hedges around your property isn't as simple a taking the garden shears out and getting to work. Maintaining lovely shrubs and hedges requires a year-round understanding of how the plants are behaving and what they need. Both under-pruning and over-pruning can negatively affect the long-term look of your hedges.

When you hire our skillful landscapers, you can be sure that you are hiring a team of experts who will strike that perfect balance of keeping your bushes, shrubs, and hedges as beautiful as they are healthy.

Trimming vs. Pruning your Shrubs and Hedges, Know the Difference


Pruning and trimming are two different processes. Especially from the plant's perspective. Pruning usually refers to the process of slashing errant branches away in a nonselective manner, controlling the growth of the hedge. If pruning is performed correctly and at the right time it will help the plant flourish with lovely dense foliage.


Trimming is the process of shaping the leafy surface of the bush into the desired shape, typically boxy. Ideally, your hedges will be trimmed at least once before July, then subsequently throughout the summer and autumn months to ensure a neat and tidy appearance. Without trimming, some shrubs and hedges can grow 2 feet per year!


Some hedges need pruning throughout the winter months as well. Not every year, but it drastically assists in achieving a uniform look in those months where the hedges flourish. Pruning in the winter months has 2 main goals: to control those branches that grow straight up, and to cut down old growth.

The branches that grow straight up tend to do so from the center of the shrubs and hedges. It is important to nip these at the bud, because if those branches grow to the point where they leaf, they can potentially block the sunlight from evenly reaching the rest of the plant, affecting the overall density and look of your shrubs. As a rule, we generally cut those down to one-third their size to maintain control over them.

The thick stems of the old growth present the problem of not being likely to produce any new branches. If left uncontrolled, old growth can overpower the potential of all the new branches and leaves by stealing all of their sun.

Reap the Benefits of Manicured Shrubs

The benefits of shrubs and hedges are endless—and not just cosmetic. There are many environmental benefits to shrubs and hedges that many people don't know about. Shrubs improve air quality, for one. They succeed in improving the air we breathe by filtering the dust and pollutants that float around your property. These attractive features also help to reduce erosion on properties too. When they are firmly planted in the ground with strong root systems, they help reduce storm-water runoff.

In order to reap these additional benefits to attractive shrubs and hedges, they must be properly planted and properly maintained. By failing to do so, you might just end up with a few tumbleweeds on your property by next autumn.

Thankfully, we are more than capable of installing these perennial woody plants with ease. Once they've been firmly rooted in the soil, we will more than gladly trim and groom your property's plants on a regular basis. By trimming and pruning your plants regularly, they'll live out their natural life while improving the health and appearance of your property.

Unhealthy Shrubs and Hedges? We Can Help

Have the green boxwood shrubs on your property begun to turn crispy and brown? Your hedges may be showing signs of decay for reasons such as:

  • Cold temperatures
  • Pests or disease
  • Irrigation issues
  • Excessive fertilization

Frigid weather can wreak havoc on shrubs and shock them into an unhealthy state, as can too much water. Some landscapers and arborists may make the mistake of adding too much fertilizer to the hedges and shrubs as well—but not us. We only keep fertilizer use to a minimum, and we rely on the finest organic fertilizers available today.

If the shrubs or hedges on your property are not looking entirely healthy, their survival may be at risk. If you notice any of the following issues with your plants, you need to call our experts as soon as possible.


If the leaves turn yellow or generally lack vibrancy, there is a good chance your plant is dealing with disease or a pest problem. Before you begin overwatering your plant or trying to revive it yourself, get in touch with our landscapers. We'll identify what your vegetation needs to thrive.


If your shrubs or hedges appear sparse, or it is as if something was munching on it, you could be dealing with a pest problem. Webbing or cottony masses on your plant could also entail that your plant is infested with insects.

While it may be tempting to purchase a pesticide from the local store, some chemicals will make these issues worse. It's best to check in with a professional about the kind of problem your hedge or shrub is facing before you decide a course of action.


Our team can help you maintain your exterior plants year-round. Book seasonal maintenance with us to help ensure that your shrubs and hedges always stay in great shape.

Understanding the Importance of Shrub and Hedge Maintenance

Having shrubs and hedges on your property can provide a variety of unique benefits. For starters, they provide natural separation and borders between different areas of your yard, or you and the neighbors.

They also provide aesthetic value. Shrubs and hedges can make any property look thoughtfully designed and elegant, but only if these plants are well maintained.

It is easy for shrubbery and hedges to become overgrown and look unruly. This overgrowth is not just damaging to the plant's appearance, but it can also slow growth and cause the bush to become unhealthy - and that is why trimming and pruning is so important.

Our expert team has over 25 years of experience handling shrubs and hedges of all kinds. Whether your property is lined with tall hedges that need to be trimmed down regularly or you want to maintain your shrubs on a less strict schedule, our professional landscapers are happy to be of service.

Different Trimming Needs for Unique Shrubs and Hedges

There are countless different types of hedges and shrubs. From large conifers and seaside garden hedges to needle-bearing evergreens, the choices are endless.

It is important to keep in mind that no two perennials are alike. Some might be shade-tolerant, while others require more water than one might expect. Most plants have different trimming needs, as well. Some might require frequent pruning, while others may only need to be trimmed at very early stages. Rest assured, we know when is best to trim and prune your plants.

Spring flowering shrubs, for example, should be cut after they bloom. On the other hand, those that flower in the summer benefit from winter and spring trims. With our team by your side, we'll make sure to manage the health and growth of all the plants on your property.

Making Sure Plants Thrive

Different species of plants grow at different rates and should be cared for accordingly. Here is a general idea of what your hedges and shrubs need to thrive:

  • Shrubs - most shrubs should be trimmed at least once a year
  • Privet hedges - should be trimmed at least three times per year
  • Boxwood, hemlock, and cedar hedges are slow-growing and can be trimmed once per year
  • Chinese elm hedges - should be trimmed five times per year

Do you have questions about the plants in your yard? Not sure what kind of bushes are on your property? Outdoor Concepts Landscape Contracting, Inc. can help you identify your species and let you know how to care for them accurately.

Navigating Hedge Placement

Before you sign the dotted line on any plant purchase or installation job, we highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with your city's regulations. Some areas enforce rules concerning hedge placement so that the greenery doesn't interfere with pedestrian walkways or motorists' visibility. In some cases, you may require a permit in advance of completing the work.

We equally suggest that you pay close attention to your property lines. If you can't tell precisely which turf is yours and your neighbor's, contact the proper authorities to find out before you plant. Even after you've planted your hedges, the hedge's growth can get out of hand and encroach on your neighbor's plot. Do your research beforehand so that you can anticipate the width of the hedge at full maturity and keep up with regular trimming to avoid any neighborly grievances.

Benefits to Privacy Hedges

Hedges boost your curb appeal and add value to your property, but they also carry with them numerous privacy benefits that you may not even realize how much you'd appreciate. Privacy hedges are a highly sought-after landscape addition that:

  • Provides visual privacy from neighbors and passersby.
  • Creates a sound barrier to reduce local noise pollution.
  • Serves as protection against high winds.
  • Works to prevent a build-up of snow.

Privacy screens are a worthwhile investment for the savvy property owner. They simultaneously provide aesthetic appeal, property value, and a host of privacy benefits. Plus, you can select the height and width of your hedges to suit your tastes and budget. You can even get creative and create different rows and varied spacing for a truly unique landscape look.
