Raising the soil level around a shrub?

16 years ago

I plan to raise and existing flower bed by several inches, but I don't want to dig up and replant a couple of bushes that are currently is a flowering maple and the other is a blue butterfly bush (clerodendrum ugandense). I have been successful in adding soil around roses without any damage to the bushes, but I don't know if these shrubs will be as forgiving. Anybody have any experience with this type of situation?
