Cutting back Ligustrum
I recently found out that the "shrubs" growing about 30 feet tall down the side of my yard are ligustrum. I like them, I'd just like them to be a little more controlled. As it is now, they are just too towering and make that side of the yard feel crowded.
Here's what I've got:
I want to get these back to a semi-controlled 6-8' privacy screen. What would be the best way to cut these back? Ideally I'd like to keep some of the lower leaves for privacy, but if I just cut them off at 6' I don't know if the bottom areas will fill in like I want. If I have to cut everything down to the ground I can, just looking for the best option to keep as much privacy as I can while still promoting good growth and filling in. Thanks!
