shortening a boxwood hedge
Would like to shorten an old boxwood hedge. Currently hedge is 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Would like to cut down to 4 feet but same width. There are some leaves about 6 inches from top in the center of the bushes. I am thinking I would start by cutting 6 inches off the top every year for four years. Is this reasonable?
