Hedge Trimming

 

 

 

  1. Devon Tree & Landscaping have experience in all types of hedges and the size of the contracts undertaken varies tremendously; from wisteria covering a house to a 200 metre long boundary hedge.

  3. The reason for calling Devon Tree & Landscaping may also vary, maybe your hedge has grown too far onto the pavement, or it is obscuring your windows, doors and views, or maybe the job has become just too much and so requires hedge trimming. 

 

Hedge Services

 

Hedges we commonly cut include:

 

  •  Wisteria - a lovely purple flower, Wisteria grows profusely and needs pruning twice a year.

  •  Leylandii and Fern - a common ever green border hedge, they can get out of control if not cut back at least once a year

  • Beech - looks fabulous in the autumn as the leaves turn brown, regular care ensures the hedge remains thick and coverage is healthy

  • Laurel and Privet - Evergreen and very shapely, these hedges can be cut to shape with regular care and attention. We can also offer Topiary as a hedge trimming service

  • Rose, wild cherry, yew and many many more.

 

We always clear up afterwards, even sweeping pavements and driveways as needed and we dispose of the hedge trimmings in an environmental and responsible way.

 

As with all our services, Devon Tree  & Landscaping can schedule our visits as often as you need to keep your hedge in good condition throughout the year. We recommend hedge pruning at least once a year, but depending on the type of hedge maybe twice.

 

Our garden operators are happy to operate under your direction and will always endeavour to complete a job based on your requirements.

 

Established hedges require trimming to keep them dense and compact. Formal hedges require more frequent trimming than informal hedges.

 

When to trim hedges?

 

New hedges require formative pruning for their first couple of years after planting. Formative pruning is usually carried out in winter or spring.

 

After this, maintenance trimming is carried out, usually once a year for informal hedges and twice a year for formal hedges. Some formal hedges may need three cuts a year. Maintenance trimming is generally carried out between spring and summer.
