Hedge Cutting & Trimming
We provide full and extensive hedge cutting and trimming services to all shapes and sized of hedges, the most popular being conifers (leylandii) which make brilliant hedges if kept under control, and generally they require at least trimming once a year or maybe twice to keep them looking neat and tidy.
- Conifers (leylandii) – Evergreen, fast growing, tolerate poor soil conditions, solid screen and reduce noise. Require cutting and trimming at least once a year.
- Privet – Evergreen, fast growing, great for wildlife and small nesting birds. Require trimming multiple times a year.
- Laurel – Evergreen & fast growing, classed as a large shrub they can quickly take over if not shaped. Require cutting more than once a year.
- Beech – Slower growing and looses its leaves each year but doesn’t always drop them keeping a partial screen during winter. Requires trimming once a year but not always.
- Hawthorn – Quick growing but can take a while to establish. Great habitat for birds and full of thorns which is great for security. Trimming once in a year or at most two to keep them tidy, their species are trees so if left unattended they will try and become one.
Hedge reductions contribute to the majority of all hedge work we carry out, we can take of a few inches through to a few metres depending on what is required. We take extra time and care in making sure they are as flat and level as possible, whether the hedge is 1m long or 100m.
We also reshape and trim various species of trees that are also suitable for hedges.
OrchardTreeCare offer a wide and comprehensive range of planting services to give you what is required. We can plant an infant hedgerow by using hedging whips, which are the smallest size of plants and can fill an expanse quickly and cheaply but will take years to establish, or we can supply and plant larger specimens to give an instant hedgerow taking care to use the best blends of compost and fertiliser to give you a healthy lush hedge.
