We use Stihl hedge trimmers for almost all the shrubs and hedges we trim. Very rarely do we use shears, only for fine tuning by fences or hard to reach places. The size you can cut the shrubs down to varies on the shrub type and what they want it to look like in a week or a month. Depends on the future plans for the property.

Yeah, the home owner would like them brought back down to soccerball/basketball size. I guess that's the way they use to be but over the years her former guy let them get bigger. I was just hesitant on doing that cause they will all be brown but i was thinking they would eventually come back even if it is next year. I just didn't want to kill off anything permenatly.
