Hedge Laying

Hedgelaying has great conservation and wildlife value. It mostly takes place every 15 years or so with periodic trimming in between to encourage regrowth and to keep it tidy. Hedges can last indefinitely when maintained in this way.

Hedgelaying takes place between autumn and early spring. It is avoided outside these periods to avoid disturbing nesting birds and trampling plants growing in and by the hedge which could contravene the Wildlife & Countryside Act.

An assessment of the suitability of your hedge can be carried out free of charge.
