⏩ How Much of My Plants Should I Cut Back Before Painting the Outside of my Home?

I often get asked by owners, how much of their plants do they need to trim back or what do they need to cut back so we can get our job done. When it comes to plant trimming, a good 4 inches will be enough for us to get our tools in and for your plants to not get any paint on them. We like to make your house look like new and be able to leave without a trace, as if we were never there to begin with. The best way to get this done is by leaving us more room to get in between your plants and your home.

If you’ve got anymore questions about preparing for exterior painting, give us a call! We’d be happy to answer any questions or address concerns you may have!
