Many gardens feature a bordering hedge of some description as they provide a degree of privacy and security. Hedge trimming ensures that the hedge remains neat, tidy and an attractive feature of the garden. Doing this regularly trains the hedge to look tight and full and avoids the need to cut back heavily. If left neglected, cutting back heavily can result in a bare and unpleasant looking hedge which may take some time to recover (some species may not recover at all). Hedge trimming little but often is the key to a perfect hedge. We can also reduce the overall height of a hedge if required.
