Hedges: Captivating, But Challenging

Isn’t a good hedge simply incomparable? It’s elegant, visually appealing, and delivers the privacy you value, merging several desirable attributes into one practical garden element. However, when your hedge doesn’t perform as expected, it can symbolize all that you don’t desire. Instead of earning appreciation from passers-by, it looks like it’s overwhelming your Macleod property!

Managing a hedge can be a significant endeavour, as they necessitate continual care to keep them in their best shape and fulfil the purpose you envisaged for them. Without constant care, their meticulously clipped foliage could turn into wild flora that breaches its specified boundaries, resulting in a strenuous and time-consuming restoration. If time is a constraint for you, we have just the right remedy 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 bring structure and clarity to gardens with their uniform, neatly groomed look.

Garden Access

When a hedge is not kept under control, it will look untidy and spread out, taking up more space than it should. It can even get in the way when you mow the lawn, and can even hide your garden.

Healthy Growth

Appropriate trimming of a hedge encourages its growth to be more robust and healthier. If it isn’t correctly trimmed, overgrowth at the top could lead to a thinner middle that can’t support the weight, resulting in instability.


Your Hedge Trimming Questions Answered

Generally, the best time to trim hedges in Macleod 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.
