What kind of Hedge Care do we do?
Not only do we do hedge trimming, but also other services, scroll to the bottom to see our other hedge services!
Hedge Trimming can be performed by anyone with a pair of trimmers, however, only an experience professional can leave your hedge looking great. You wouldn't cut your hair yourself, so why not leave your hedges to people that can make your hedge look like art?
Hedge Trimming isn't just about cutting the edges back and making it look neat; it's also about clipping into the hedge to control the growth, so that when it does re-grow, it looks fuller and aesthetically pleasing!
We would visit as often as you need us to, though we'd normally recommend that you have your hedges clipped once a year, however, for some types we would do it twice a year. During our first visit, we'd also ask you if you have any long-term plans for the hedge, in which case we'd offer our shaping services, otherwise we can just keep it trimmed!
We would also recommend you call us as soon as a new hedge is put in or grown, so that unhealthy growth is prevented. We also won't cut your hedge too early in the year, as it may disturb nesting birds in the hedge.
Of course we will also clean up after ourselves as always, in a responsible, environmentally friendly way.
The types of hedge we work mainly with are:
Holly (All kinds)
Red Leaf Berberis
Laurel (all kinds)
Esmanthus X Burkwoodii
Photinia Red Robin
We also have experience with Fruited Hedges, Edible Hedges and more.
We only perform hedge topping to certain species of hedge. Most can take it, but some hedges can wither and die if this is done to them. Conifer and Leyland Cypress respond well to topping. No matter which type of hedge you have though, contact us and we'll have a chat about topping your hedge!
We can shape all types of hedges to create boundaries in your garden. These will help stop intruders, give you privacy and can help make your garden look great. All the different types of hedge we can work with are above.
Whether you've moved into a new property, are sick of your hedges or want to replant, we can remove any hedges you have! Do be aware that if you want us to take down a hedge between your garden and a neighbour's, if it has been up for more than 12 years, you must consult with your neighbour before any work commences.
We have specialised equipment in order to remove hedges with as little fuss as possible and no roots or remainders of the hedge left. firstly we cut through the branches and stem of the hedge, then remove the roots from the ground. Depending on the type of hedge we sometimes have to use a tree stump grinder. We then break down all remnants of the hedge into mulch and re-soil the ground so that you can replant anything you like there.
While similar to hedge trimming, hedge reduction is done to a higher volume of the hedge. This means rather than cut everything back an inch or two to a regular length, reduction gets rid of up to half the hedge. We can do this to most types of hedge and keep them healthy, but the season we'd do it would depend on the species! Give us a call and we'll have a chat about your hedge.
We also perform Topiary!
