Hedges away.

I have tried to keep our hedges under control. However I haven’t been able to put enough time into it. I would do some one day and then some more another day and it never seemed to get anywhere. Also the ladder I was using wasn’t really tall enough to reach the top properly. Not having the right tools (like a hedging saw) didn’t help either. Trying to cut it square with a pair of secateurs and a hacksaw. I know we have a lot of hedges. So we decided to pay a gardener for a day’s work on them.

I must say they look great now. He gave them a good shape and even took away all the clippings. After he had gone I measured the hedges. We have 90 metres of hedge. The photos don’t really show how long the hedges are.

  1. Electric hedge trimmers are your friend. I’ve used Mum’s and they make light work of my hedge. In your case, it’s probably well worth the investment.
