i have 8 evergreen bushes; they were originally part of the christmas plantings in Rockerfeller Center over 25 years ago. After being removed they were planted in my yard and maintained well. I MUST CUT THEM BACK! I will be cementing my front yard for parking space in the next year.
The evergreens are six feet high and 3-4 feet deep. I do not want to put them in shock. When is the best time to cut them back? should it be done gradually or done all at once? thanks for the help!
