Formative pruning is required for the initial two years of a brand-new hedge’s life. Right after your hedge is established, it will require maintenance trimming. The regularity depends on the type of hedge you have. Unconstrained hedges do not require pruning as regularly- normally once a year or even much less. Professional hedges will require constant trimming to preserve their form. Depending on the varieties, this can be two times or thrice a year. Boundary hedges need to be cut back so that they do not impede pedestrian access on the pavement.
Exactly how we trim back, hinges on how you would like your hedge to be shaped. Preferably, we thin out the hedge sides a little toward the top to enable rainfall and also sunshine to make it to the lower foliage. Nevertheless, some customers have a distinct shape in mind. We can cater to your personal taste with viable suggestions as necessary.
Unskilled cutting can leave the tips looking woody and not able to generate new growth. Specific factors for flowering and fruiting hedges, need additional consideration. Over-pruning a fruiting hedge can cause it to lose its fruit. Trimming the last year’s growth will prevent blooming.

If you have an old hedge peppered with holes, we can assist to reinvigorate it with suitable laying and also coppicing to boost fresh development.

It is important to be conscious that there are certain legislation around hedge cutting in the Uk, which also applies of course in Bristol. As an example, some fully grown hedgerows are protected by regulation. This does not generally impinge on garden hedges. Both neighbours are generally responsible for boundary hedges. Both should settle on any major work, consisting of coppicing, laying or removal of the hedge. If the hedge is within your boundary you possess it. Your neighbour will at that point just have the right to cut any part of the hedge that infringes over the border line. In this situation, you should really ask your neighbour for authorisation to enter their property to cut down your hedge. Your neighbour has the right to cut back roots that grow onto their property, yet they do not have the right to use chemicals that would destroy your hedge.
Whilst any type of wild bird is constructing or using a nest, it must be noted that it would be an infraction if their nests were deliberately destroyed or damaged and their eggs, chicks or adults intentionally hurt or killed in the process of trimming your hedge. Our highly-trained arborists keep up-to-date when it comes to the policies, but for your own property, it is definitely advisable talk to your area council for the latest laws.
