Cutting Back Shrubs
We have 3 tall shrubs on the side of our house and every winter we have to tie them up so the snow and ice do not bend them over and block the driveway. We want to know how we go about cutting them back. Do we top them or just trim them? They are tall and slender shrubs.

Most shrubs can be cut back by one third. Do not cut back any more than this, as it will harm the plants.
