Prepare the hedge
To ensure even growth and a neat appearance, it is important to prepare your hedge before you start trimming.

Trimming the Hedge
An overgrown hedge can be a real eyesore. If you have an electric trimmer, you can easily tidy it up. First, make sure that you have the right trimmer for the job.

Start with the sides
Start by trimming the sides of the hedge with an electric trimmer. You’ll want to start at the top of the hedge and work your way down. Be sure to wear protective gloves and eye wear while you’re trimming.

Finally, trim the bottom of the hedge. Start in the middle and work your way out to the sides. Once you’re finished, clean up any loose leaves and branches.
Work on the top
Start at the top of the hedge, and work your way down. This will ensure that you don’t accidentally miss any areas, and it will also make it easier to stay consistent with the overall shape of the hedge.
Finish with the front
Now that you have the back and sides complete, it’s time to move to the front of the hedge. Begin at one end, holding the trimmer at a slight angle so that you only cut off the very tips of the branches. Work your way slowly across the front of the hedge, being careful not to overtrim.
An electric trimmer is a power tool that uses a spinning cutting line to trim overgrown areas of grass and weeds. It is a great alternative to using a manual trimmer, and it will save you a lot of time and effort. This section will show you how to trim a hedge with an electric trimmer.
Clean the electric trimmer
Most electric trimmers have a guard that prevents you from cutting too close to the housing, but you can still get dirt and debris inside. To clean it out, unplug the trimmer and remove the guard. Use a brush to remove any Grass, twigs, or other debris from the cutting head and inside the trimmer housing. You may also need to use a small pick to clean out any buildup in the crevices. Once you’ve removed all the debris, reassemble the trimmer and plug it in.
Put away the safety gear
