Hedge Trimming

Why struggle with trimming hedges and carting piles of clippings to the tip, when you can sit back and watch our experienced landscape gardeners transform them into stylish and beautifully manicured borders which compliment everything from your garden to home and neighbourhood.

When to trim hedges

For a few years after planting, a new hedge requires formative pruning which is usually carried out in winter or spring each year.

On established hedges, maintenance hedge trimming is generally carried out between spring and summer. Usually once a year for informal hedges and twice a year for formal hedges although some formal hedges, may require three cuts.

Our friendly experienced landscape gardeners are passionate about hedges, nature and beautiful gardens.


Formal hedges

Properly and regularly trimmed, a formal hedge can look magnificent, and does not need to exceed 60cm (2ft) in width.

Formal hedges are generally slightly tapered in towards the top on both sides. This allows light to reach down to the base and is referred to as “trimming the hedge to a batter”.

Informal hedges

Trimming informal hedges is more like pruning. We will cut the hedge back to its original size and a natural shape, removing misplaced shoots, damaged leaves and any unwanted weeds and brambles.
