We are now officially, in Trimming Season

The trimming season has now started for us. We try to wait, until the ornamental's have pushed out, the "new growth" for the season and for the flowering to have stopped, before we start trimming. As I mentioned in an earlier post sometimes people want this done early.

I went with Guillerme and Wagner to a property in Dover, Massachusetts, to start the trimming. First, we go through all of the beds and do the weeding and rake that all out. I have found this to be a much easier way to do the job, instead of doing the trimming first.

Guillerme will be doing any of the shearing and I will be doing the hand clipping and "up branching" of the trees on the perimeter of the property and any that are on the inside as well. Wagner for the most part will be doing the "picking up" of all of the weed and trim debris. At this property we have a compost area, in the woods that we can use, instead of putting it in the truck and hauling it away for a fee.

We experienced another day of, off and on rain showers and then around 4 PM, a thunder storm came and ended our day.

  1. I could use some trimming done, we have had so much rain. My husband does all the trimming, but it is impossible to keep up with.
