Hard Cutting Everygreens/Shrubs
For low lying evergreen, how much or how little can I Hard Cut it.
There are some spots that are getting quite tall. I've yet to walk into that area to see how thick the branches are, but how much of low lying evergreen can I hard cut. I hard cut the edges during the summer, which was great to stop growth, as the edges have remained straight with no overgrowth yet. We'll see how much blooms out this year.
I also have some large evergreens that are too tall. I did a mild shear and took off about 3-5 inches about 2 weeks back. Just enough that, there was about 1/2 inch of *green* on the tops.
However, post review, I'm looking at them, they definately need a heavy lopping on the top, I would say another 3-5 inches. How much HARD cut can I do. I'm afraid to cut off the top to the point where there is no *green* on the top, and then find out it will never grow back out...
