ER Lawn Care trims all shrubs and hedges less than 12 feet in height. However, our crews will determine on-site at their discretion which shrubs and hedges should be trimmed prior to bloom.

Most of the trimming we do is done during Spring and Fall Cleanups to address the heaviest growth. We do not trim in the winter or early spring, especially those plants with spring blooms.

Any plants with spring blooms, such as the Rose of Sharon, Crape Myrtle, Hibiscus, Butterfly Bush, Hydrangeas, Lilac, Forsythia, Azalea, and Rhododendron, will not be trimmed in early spring or winter.
