Hedges are important, not just for providing colour or boundaries, but also for giving food and shelter to wildlife including birds, insects and mammals.

Care is taken to minimise disturbance to wildlife, but also to avoid problems such as hedges overhanging paths or blocking windows.

Hedge maintenance is carried out in July October January.

We carry out the required work on all contracted hedges within our timescales; however this work can be delayed due to nesting birds. In these circumstances the team will re-visit after the birds have left.
