Hedge Trimming

Hedges must be maintained and kept under control, especially where access for pedestrians and vehicles is required

Our teams know the best time to prune and where to cut the hedges to ensure they promote future growth.  We have a range of hedge trimmers including extended handle trimmers that are battery operated so are quieter and more environmentally friendly.

When should hedges be pruned?

Most hedges require pruning at least once a year.  The type of your hedge will determine when it should be pruned.

  • Deciduous hedges Hornbeam, Hawthorn and Beech

For the first two years after planting the hedges should be pruned in winter. Established hedges should be pruned in the summer

  • Evergreen hedges Privet, Holly, Box

For the first two years after planting the hedges should be pruned in the spring. Established hedge should be pruned in the summer

Nesting birds

Under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 it is an offence to undertake work on hedges and damage or destroy any nest of a wild bird whilst it is in use or being built.  The bird nesting season is usually between March to August.  We carefully check the hedgerows for any signs of nests and will not undertake any work if nests are found.

ABOUT

CGM1 v5

Our History

Back in 1985, a young and very entrepreneurial Tim Glover, set off on his adventure to provide grass cutting services to the local community here in West Norfolk. He sold his personal vehicle to purchase a brand-new VW Caddy, and bought his first ride on lawn mower, his brother fabricated and made his first trailer.

Fast forward to today, we are trusted by some of the biggest and well-known businesses in the country to offer a broad range of green contracting services, however, we still look after the needs of our smaller and domestic customers too, maintaining the long-term relationship that first developed all those years ago.
