Hedge Trimming and Shaping

The majority of our hedge trimming is undertaken annually often during the growing season, early spring through to summer and autumn. Hedges can be trimmed as often as you like depending on how manicured you like your hedge to look throughout the growing season.

Hedge Reduction

Hedges that are wanting to be reduced in height or width to a point the thickness of the stems become to thick for hedge trimmers. Once again this varies with species with what we can do as some species do not recover when their lateral growth has been cut far back. We can give advise further during the quote.
