Keeping the blades of your hedge trimmer sharp is vital - dull blades won’t cut through the vegetation properly, causing the blade to snag and making cuts uneven, resulting in an untidy finish.
Always start from the bottom up when trimming hedges or shrubs. Pay close attention to the depth of your trim: if you cut too far into the hedge or bush it will look straggly and uneven. Go slow and only trim a few inches at a time.
