Acers don't have berries they have winged seeds. Can you post a photo so we can ID it?

I'd stop watering now, it will have settled the soil around it and it's nearly winter so it won't need water.

The leaves have dropped because of the season

Hard Pruning a Bay Hedge

Yes, Portugal laurel, Prunus lusitanicus.

How short to cut the branches is a difficult one to answer. The odd one might die back but over all it will be OK. I favour cutting back to the main stem as it looks less ugly initially. But see what others think.

The important thing is to cut it well back from where you want the hedge to be eventually, otherwise the stumps are exposed too easily after trimming

They like a summer baking and they don't like to be buried very deeply. That's the extent of my knowledge

and someone may tell me that's wrong
