Q.HOA Maintained One Side Of Conifer Hedge, Other Side Not Maintained.

Zone Beaverton OR 97078 | maryunbarry added on May 21, 2022 | Answered

The HOA has regularly maintained the outside and top of my hedge but unfortunately I have not maintained the inside. I finally purchased a hedge trimmer but I don’t know where to start. There is a section that has died because we planted a burning bush next to the hedge that grew large and has prevented the hedge from staying healthy in that section. The rest is healthy as it were but it has not been trimmed for years and I am afraid to trim too closely without killing it. Any suggestions?

for now, I would only trim edges, or leave it alone. It needs time to get some of that light and recover a bit before being shaped up.
