Trimming is appropriate for more formal gardens and for hedges but for individual plants pruning is by far the better option to maintain plant health and appearance over time.

The objectives of pruning shrubs are to maintain vigour, remove older, damaged, diseased or overcrowded branches to help maintain the natural size and shape of a plant, and improve flowering and fruiting.
Correct pruning is one of the most essential of all management practices for shrubs in the home landscape. Proper pruning will help keep shrubs vigorous, maintain them in proper shape and form for a desirable landscape effect and add years to their usefulness.
