Hedges: Captivating, But Challenging

There’s just nothing quite like a good hedge, is there? Stunning, picturesque, and giving you the privacy you deserve, they combine so many great qualities into one useful garden structure. But when your hedge isn’t living up to its potential, it can embody everything you don’t want. Now instead of garnering praise from passers-by, it seems to be overgrowing your Doreen property!

A hedge can be a great undertaking, as they require regular maintenance to help them look their best and fulfil the roles you set out for them. Without dedicated care, their neatly trimmed foliage can give way to untamed greenery that defies its designated boundaries, making for a time-consuming and labour-intensive restoration. If you don’t have the time for that, we have just the solution for you!

The Benefits Of Hedge Trimming

Whether your hedge is designed for privacy, aesthetics, or a variety of reasons, we keep your needs at the forefront of our minds.


A hedge acts as a natural privacy barrier, shielding you from prying eyes that may want to peer onto your property.


Hedges provide structure and distinction to gardens, thanks to their uniformly trimmed and tidy appearance.

Garden Access

Without proper care, a hedge can grow disorderly and sprawl out, occupying more space than planned. It could even interfere with lawn mowing and conceal your garden.

Healthy Growth

Proper hedge trimming promotes denser and healthier growth. If not correctly trimmed, excessive top growth could result in an inadequately thick middle, causing instability.


Your Hedge Trimming Questions Answered

Generally, the best time to trim hedges in Doreen is during autumn (March to May) and early spring (September and October). This is because the temperatures tend to be milder so that the hedge can recover and regrow before the hottest and coldest times of the year.

How often a hedge needs to be trimmed will depend on many factors including the type of hedge, its growth rate, desired shape, and aesthetic preferences. Most often, people will trim their hedges either once or twice a year, though it can be done more often if necessary.
Cutting the top of a hedge is also known as the hedge’s ‘horizontal cut’. Doing this yourself means you will need the appropriate tools (hedge shears, loppers, or a hedge trimmer) with sharp and clean blades, along with the confidence to pull off an even cut! You will then need to measure and mark the desired height with string to ensure an even and neat result.

Start from one end and work your way along to the other end, using smooth, sweeping motions to create an even cut. If your hedge is long, you may wish to cut it in smaller sections for better control and accuracy. Once you’re done, step back and assess your work and make any necessary adjustments. Lastly, make sure you clean up and remove any fallen branches, debris, or clippings from the hedge and surrounding areas.

To make your hedge bushier, ensure you prune it regularly to promote healthy growth. Use proper pruning techniques, or have a professional do so if this isn’t in your skillset. Hedges also need to be fertilised and watered adequately to help them grow in nice and bushy, and applying a layer of mulch around the base of the hedge is also an excellent idea. Make sure your hedge receives sufficient sunlight, as excessive shade can hinder its growth and density.
Shaping a hedge involves careful assessment and precise pruning. Once you’ve decided what you want your hedge to look like, establish a guideline using a string, level, or stakes. Begin trimming to create the desired shape, using smooth and even strokes, then shape the top.
