Landscape Trimming & Cleanup in Portland, OR

Landscape Trimming & Cleanup in Portland, OR

One of our clients in the Portland, OR area reached out to us about their landscape beds and told us they needed some help getting them cleaned up and trimming the plants. We were happy to come help restore their landscaping to its former glory. At J&C Lawn Care, we provide seasonal cleanups for clients throughout the Portland area, including Happy Valley, Troutdale, and Gresham.

Below, check out a couple of photos from the project and learn about the services we performed for this client, including bed reshaping, plant trimming, and mulching.


Why Landscapes Should Be Regularly Trimmed

First, we worked to trim the landscape plants so they wouldn't look so overgrown. Our team came in with the proper trimming tools and trimmed the shrubs back to their proper size. Keeping plants and shrubs trimmed is key to their overall health, as it can help prevent insect infestations and plant diseases from taking hold. When a trimming professional checks out landscape plants, they can easily spot signs of these problems.

Proper trimming also helps the plants look shapely and maintained, thus increasing this homeowner's overall curb appeal. An unkempt landscaping area can be unsightly and is not a desirable look, so their recently trimmed plants will help with that.

While these activities may make you think of sculpted landscape gardens, the truth is that hedge trimming is an important part of keeping plants healthy.

How Often Should Plants Be Trimmed

Most bushes, hedges, and small trees in this area of Oregon can usually be trimmed just once a year during the fall, just before winter begins. This is when plants have finished blooming but not too close to when it gets cold and plants become prone to damage. Trimming at other times of year could prevent full flowering in spring or interrupt new, healthy growth. Non-flowering plants should, however, be trimmed in the early spring before new growth begins to keep the new growth healthy.

If your yard is completely overgrown and unhealthy, though, it doesn’t matter the time of year - the fastest path to recovery is to start now. We can help you examine your yard and decide on a plan of action for getting it trimmed up and ready to restart healthy...
