Plant Trimming

Trimming landscape hedges in Ankeny, IA.

All plants, both small and large, require trimming from time to time in order for them to grow optimally. Our trimming service will help upkeep your landscape plants so that their appearance continues to benefit your curb appeal. There are a few times each year when trimming should take place, and they are the growing seasons of spring and fall.

Our team can visit your property in the spring to freshen up your hedges and other plants so that they flourish with spring growth. In the fall, we can trim your plants one more time to remove any overgrowth from the summer in order to tidy them up one last time before winter dormancy takes place.
