Short or long, any field boundary can be laid. I have expertise in 3 different hedge laying styles and will advise on the most suitable style for the type of hedge and your needs. All of my work will satisfy the requirements of the hedge laying schemes from Natural England. I can also offer a consultation service for hedge laying grants, identifying suitability of hedges and the best hedge laying grant elements that can be applied for.
Deciduous garden hedges (trees that lose their leaves and some evergreen hedges) that become too tall or wide can be laid to bring it back to a manageable size. With expertise in 3 different hedge laying styles, I can recommend a style that will best suit the hedge, maintain privacy and create a feature in the garden.
I've been a professional hedge layer since 2005 and competing in hedge laying matches since 2011. Starting in the intermediate classes I quickly progressed to the Open (the highest class). I am 2 times National Champion (Devon class), Blackdown Hills Champion, 3 times Cotley Hunt Champion, Devon Rural Skills Champion. I am 2 times Wrington & Burrington Open Champion (North Somerset style) and in 2023 won the Champions Class.
In recent years, I have taken on a couple of trainee hedge layers who share my principles of high quality workmanship and attention to detail. They are now excellent cutters in their own right and together we are an efficient, cost effective team delivering high quality hedge laying.
