Proper trimming enhances the beauty of your hedges. Improper trimming usually does more harm than good and not just aesthetically. Removing useful parts of the plant can greatly affect its health. The point is to remove the dead branches and help form the tree, not reshape it by brute force.
Weeds are invasive and aggressive creatures which crowd out your desirable plant life. They thrive in the harshest conditions and you cannot just pull them up and drop them thinking they are finished; they will find a way to survive.
You must get them by the root. If you do not, they are just coming right back.Often this seemingly simple chore turns out to be rather difficult as these roots tend to run very deep and break off underground.
Mulch can make a flower or shrubbery bed look great, but it also serves an
important function for the plants. First, it inhibits weed growth, enabling more water and nutrients to go to the plants you wish to cultivate. Also, as organic mulch decomposes, it puts precious nutrients back into the soil. It also retains moisture which helps the plants resist drought. Because of the moisture retention quality of mulch, you do want to keep it a few inches away from plant stems and about half a foot away from tree trunks to avoid rot.
It is important to weed the beds and trim any hedges prior to laying down mulch.
