Homeowners often add various shrubs and trees to their property in order to shelter the home from extreme temperatures. Trees and shrubs can help to keep the home cool during the heat and humidity of the summer, and keep some of that blustery, wintery wind chill away from your doorstep.
Some homeowners or property owners choose to use hedges for privacy reasons. A hedge can provide privacy to basement apartments as to where there is no space for fencing. They can also help to define a property line.
However, homeowners and rental property owners often neglect to trim trees and hedges that they have planted. Although they add privacy and offer some sort of protection from the elements, hedges that have not been trimmed for some time can also be a hindrance. An example of this would be that the hedges have overgrown the entrance path to an upper apartment level or a lower level in which the resident has to go down a flight of stairs.
An overgrown hedge also prevents others from noticing whether unsafe activity is taking place in that particular area. It is important for the safety of tenants as well as homeowners that these hedges are trimmed at regular intervals.
Tree branches can also become cumbersome. They can grow to long and scrap against the exterior trim of a home. Low-lying branches that pass the fence line onto the pavement can cause severe injury to those that pass by the property.
