To give you an exact cost on your hedge trimming job in Ottawa we just need some details from you regarding your property and hedges which you can send to us by email or over the phone if you prefer to call. To give you an idea of the hedge trimming costs, keep reading below.

There are a couple of variables that can add to the cost of pruning your hedge.

Your Hedge Height

How tall are the hedge fences? If they are more than 6′ tall then we’ll have to utilize a step in order to prune them. Whenever the stepping stool is required for hedge fence pruning then the time required to trim your hedges increases dramatically which means that the price increases due to the extra time required to complete the job.

Climbing up, down and moving the step takes extra time during the hedge trimming job so we account for this added time with a surcharge added to the total cost. Additionally if your hedges are extra tall and we have to go to the top step then we may even need a partner on site to hold the hedge trimmer from falling.

The Length of Your Hedges

Is your support just a couple of feet long or does it traverse the whole length of your property line? We’ve pruned supports that cost as low as $200 to as high as $3000 or more. Factors affecting cost are the tallness, length and availability of the hedge that needs to be trimmed.

How Open Is Your Hedge

If we have free access to your hedge then the hedge trimming is much easier and will cost you a lot less. If however, we have to work around vehicles, boats, sheds or other obstacles then the cost of your hedge trimming will increase due to the additional time required for your hedge trimming job.

When was the Last Time Your Hedge was Trimmed?

If you haven’t maintained your hedge for several years then there will be more work required to trim your hedges to a level  you will be satisfied with and we want to ensure you are happy with our work. So if your hedges have been neglected then the cost may be more due to the additional work required for your hedge trimming.

Clean Up and Dump Fees

There can be a lot of waste created during the hedge trimming process and this waste has to go somewhere. If there are a lot of hedges to trim or the hedges have not been trimmed in a while and there ends up being a lot of waste to discard then there may be dump fees that would be added to your hedge trimming cost and also if there is a lot of waste then there would be more time required to clean up your property to finish the job.

All in all it is hard to give an accurate hedge trimming cost without some details from you first so the best thing to do if you are looking for hedge trimming services in Ottawa is to give us a call or send us an email and we’ll be happy to help you right away.
