My husband and I just purchased a home with a trio of out-of-control evergreen hedges by the drive. Currently, they obstruct the view enough to be a considerable hazard. Neighbors say the six-foot-tall bushes have been around for 10-15 years. We would like to keep them, just trimmed down to half their current height. Would pruning them down so far kill the plants, or would we be better off just removing them entirely and planting fresh?
