Hedge Maintenance & Removal

Hedge maintenance requires careful planning and execution to ensure the desired results while maintaining safety and the overall aesthetic of your property. It’s advisable to seek guidance from our professional landscapers or arborists to ensure the continued health of your hedge.

Hedge Maintenance:

Hedge maintenance is essential to keep hedges healthy, attractive, and functional. Here are the typical steps involved:
Home/Residential Garden Maintenance

Pruning and Trimming: Regularly trim and shape the hedge to maintain its desired height, width, and overall appearance. Use appropriate tools like hedge trimmers, shears, or pruners.

Timing: The best time for trimming depends on the type of hedge. Many hedges benefit from annual pruning in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. However, some may require more frequent attention during the growing season.

Remove Dead or Diseased Growth: Eliminate dead or diseased branches to prevent the spread of disease and promote healthy growth.

Fertilization: Depending on the type of hedge and soil conditions, you may need to apply fertilizer to ensure the hedge receives necessary nutrients.

Watering: Adequate watering is crucial, especially during dry spells. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Mulching: Apply mulch around the base of the hedge to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Pest and Disease Control: Monitor the hedge for signs of pests and diseases and take appropriate measures for control if needed.

Training and Shaping: Train young hedges to grow in the desired shape and direction by selectively pruning and tying branches.

Hedge Removal:

There are various reasons to remove a hedge, such as changing landscaping preferences, disease, overgrowth, or property development, our highly trained team can help:

Assessment: We will evaluate the hedge’s size, density, and root system to determine the best approach for removal.

Prune First: Trim the hedge down to a manageable height using pruning shears or a hedge trimmer. This will make it easier to handle during removal.

Root Removal: Depending on the hedge’s size, we may need to dig up or grind the roots. We can also use a stump grinder or a shovel to excavate the root system. This can be a labour-intensive process, which is why you need professional assistance for larger hedges.

Dispose of Debris: We remove the cut branches and roots from the site. We can either chip the branches and roots for mulch or arrange for proper disposal.

Site Preparation: After removing the hedge, we can help prepare the area for new landscaping or whatever purpose you have in mind. This may involve levelling the ground, adding topsoil, or planting new vegetation.
