One of our regulars in Mickeover, Derby. We trim this Privet hedge between 3/4 times during the spring/summer season. This is the final trim now until early spring next year. The hedge was becoming to wide at roadside view by the lamp post, so our customer asked us to take it back a few inches to fall back behind the lamp post. As you can see in image 2 the area that we’ve been harder on is now brown. This is the woody parts of the Privet, but next growing season it will recover and throw out new growth.
