About our Hedge Trimming services

Whether kept formally or informally, hedges need regular trimming. Informal hedges, if left to grow unkempt, will often swamp their surrounding environment. In urban settings, pruning informal hedges once a year will generally be enough to curb excessive growth and it is usually carried out in spring.

For more formal and decorative hedges, trimming needs to be repeated throughout the year, again usually in spring but may need to be repeated throughout the summer and autumn, depending on the speed of growth and the desired aesthetics.

As well as established hedges, the newly planted ones will also need regular maintenance to encourage the correct shape and size. For new hedges – both formal and informal – it is essential that pruning is carried out regularly in the first couple of years. It is rarely possible to encourage gaps in the growth to be filled once the hedge has grown.

Our hedge trimming service is usually provided as part of a bigger package of garden and park maintenance.

What is hedge trimming?

Put simply, hedge trimming is the purposeful maintenance of a hedge by cutting it back into shape. This has two main benefits:

  • Hedge trimming improves the health of the hedge by helping it to take shape, and by allowing new growth to flourish.
  • Hedge trimming improves the aesthetics of the hedge: There’s nothing messier than an untended hedge!

When do hedges need trimming?

Young hedges require formative trimming during their first couple of years. This helps them to grow big and strong. Established hedges need regular trimming, with frequency and intensity varying between types. This is required to keep the hedge at a manageable shape and size, and to encourage ongoing healthy growth.

When should you not cut hedges?

Some hedgerows may not be cut during bird nesting season (1/3 – 31/7 inclusive), but this is unlikely to impact residential hedges.
