Hedge-trimming is an art form difficult to master, as this Sunnyside example shows. Master Gardener Jim McLain says hedges should be fuller at the bottom and taper to a narrower top. If trimming is left too long, bald spots that may never grow back, like the ones in this hedge, are the result when trimming is finally done.
