For newly planted hedges we recommend a formative prune after 2 years. Following on from this an annual maintenance trim is generally sufficient for an informal hedge or up to 3 times annually for a more structured shape.
Hedge maintenance is important for the health and well-being of your hedge and ensures a dense and compact shape which reduces the chances of disease. We can also tackle the most neglected of hedges in order to bring them back under control! If for some reason you require a hedge removed we can facilitate this along with removal of the stumps to prevent regrowth.
Autumn and Winter is the ideal time to undertake hedge work when new growth has slowed down.
It is best to avoid bird nesting time (March-August) so that our feathered friends can raise their babies safely!
We can also work with you if you require a new hedge. We can discuss your requirements and suggest some suitable species. There are many variables to be taken into consideration. Would you prefer an evergreen hedge, ones that flowers, is scented? Do you need a variety that will grow and fill out quickly to provide a barrier or screening? We can help you to narrow down the choices, prepare the ground, supply and plant, and advise on the aftercare.
