Why do people Cut Hedges?

There are many reasons why people might choose to cut their hedges. It is simply a matter of aesthetics for some – they want their hedges to look nice and well-groomed. It might be more of a functional need for others – perhaps the hedge is getting too big and blocking out light, or maybe it’s starting to encroach on a neighbour’s property.


When is the best time to Cut Hedges?

The best time to cut hedges depends on the type of hedge you have. Evergreen hedges, such as boxwood and yew, can be trimmed at any time of year. Deciduous hedges, such as hawthorn and privet, should be trimmed in late winter or early spring before new growth begins.


How often should Hedges be Cut?

How often you need to cut your hedge depends on how fast it grows. Some Hedge species grow very slowly, so they might only need to be trimmed once or twice a year. Other species can grow quite quickly, so they might need to be trimmed every month or so.


What are the Different Hedge Cutting Techniques?

There are a few different ways to go about hedge cutting. The most common method is shearing, which involves using large shears to trim the hedge into the desired shape. Another popular method is pruning, which involves selectively removing individual branches to achieve the desired shape. Hedge thinning is another option, which involves removing some of the hedge’s density to allow more light and air to pass through.

I don’t leave reviews very often, but I felt the works that Sid carried out on my garden went above and beyond what was required. From inital contact to job completion he offered such a professional service, and ensured my tree felling requirements where completed to the highest standard possible. Big thanks Sid, A+++

A tree had fallen down and was obstructing our driveway, and needed urgent attention as we could not get out in the car. I called Sid and he managed to get to us the same day, and although he had another job booked he made a make shift pathway so we could exit, and then came back the following day and completed the work. Amazing service, real caring guy. Big thank you from us!
