Shrubs should be pruned in the same manner regardless of the type of shrub. Pruning a shrub can help to keep it healthy and make it look its best. There are two general types of shrubs: deciduous and evergreen. Each type of shrub will need different care when it comes to pruning.
Deciduous shrubs need less frequent pruning but still need to be kept clean and free from debris. They should be trimmed back every 6 months or when they start to grow out of control. This will help them stay neat and tidy while allowing new growth to occur naturally.
Evergreen shrubs do not require any pruning at all but still benefit from being cleaned up once in a while. Once a year, suffocate any buds that have started to form on the branches and around the base of the shrub. This will help to keep the plant clean and tidy.
Shrubs should be pruned in late winter or early spring, when the new growth is dormant. If a shrub is overgrown, it should be trimmed back to a more manageable size.
Shrubs need regular pruning to maintain their shape and appearance. Proper pruning techniques will reduce the need for future maintenance and ensure that the shrub functions properly as part of your landscape.
When selecting the type of pruning tool to use, remember that there are three types of cuts: lateral, vertical, and shear. Lateral cuts are made at a 45-degree angle from the stem away from the branch. Vertical cuts are made near the top of a stem or branch and shear cuts are made between two branches.
To make a lateral cut, start by measuring from the side of the shrub where you want to make the cut, then draw a line perpendicular to this measurement. Make your cut along this line. To make a vertical cut, stand behind the shrub with your arm stretched out in front of you parallel to the ground. Hold onto a branch close to where you want to make your cut with one hand and use your free hand to reach up and grasp another branch above where you want to make your cut. Pull down on this other branch until it snaps; this will cause you to drop down into position so that you can make your cut. To make a shear cut, hold one end of the branch you're cutting with your hand and use your other hand to hold onto the stem above where you want to make your cut. Use a sharp knife to slice down the stem below where you're holding onto it.
