Clipped Hedges-Clipped Hedges  Shrubs such as boxwood and privet are often sheared to form a hedge. To maintain a solid wall of green, shear the new growth frequently during the early part of the growing season. Keep the top narrower than the base so that the upper branches don't shade the lower ones. Stop shearing the hedge approximately six weeks before your area's average first frost

What to Prune When

Boxwood sets the standard for formal clipped hedges. Its ability to withstand frequent shearing and shaping makes this evergreen popular. You can also let it grow tall to provide a screen. Some varieties grow to 20 feet tall.
