Since shrub trimming is done to encourage new growth, dead parts of the shrub must be removed. Otherwise, the plant will use its energy for rejecting old growth rather than toward creating new branches. Shrubs should be trimmed well once a year, but care should be taken not to over trim.
A good shrub trimming tip is to think of human hair cuts when it’s time to trim shrubs. Like regularly trimming human hair, the shrubs should be trimmed just enough to get rid of dead material and encourage new growth. A pleasant shape should be the goal for shrub trims as well as human hair cuts.
Trimming off dead branches and leaves before shaping shrubs is a good idea. Green areas under the shrub's bark should be left as is because these are still alive. Once the old growth is removed, the remaining healthy plant can be trimmed to form a pleasing shape. Shrubs may be trimmed into formal rectangular or rounded shapes or just cut to follow the shrub’s natural shape. Shrub shape should be determined by the homeowner’s preference as well as the exterior style of the house.
