We can reduce overgrown hedges, perhaps by topping out to a line, fast growing species like Leylandii. We can also advise on the rejuvenation of hedges giving you an honest opinion as to whether a hedge can be rescued or not. This is usually dependant on the species, as some hedges like Yew and Prunus, can re-sprout from old wood whereas other conifer hedges like Thuja, Lawson and Leylandii do not.
We can remove hedges either by grubbing out or use of a stump grinder, depending upon the location. Hedge removal maybe required due to poor planting selection in the first place or through disease issues. We can advise whether re-planting is an option, or fencing is now required.
We can advise on and plant a wide range of hedges taking account of the objective the hedge is fulfilling. This can be a barrier, security, screen, wildlife habitat, ornamental or for many other purposes. Whatever the reason species selection is critical as hedges are in situ for many, many years.
