Build Strength & Reduce Maintenance

Growth regulators can be applied to help in various situations. Reducing branch elongation creates tighter, thicker branching, making plants stronger and more capable to withstand ice storms and wind shearing. Due to slowed growth, your wallet will enjoy fewer trimming and maintenance appointments.

Shrub Growth Regulators

Growth Regulators for Shrubs

Hiring a Professional Landscaper or Gardener to trim your shrubs can be very expensive. We can save you hundreds and keep your property looking cleaner for a longer time between trimming. For Yews and Boxwoods, we recommend a spring trimming to keep them clean and sharp, so the spring application of growth regulators made to your hedges will slow growth for 3-6 months, reducing labor time for the second trimming later in the summer. We want shrubs to flush healthy spring growth – yet it is important to keep maintenance costs under control by reducing the dollar per hour you are being charged by full service landscape companies to trim hedges 2-3 times a year.
