Three rules for a healthy hedge

Three rules for a healthy hedge

Hedges are common features in many gardens and can either serve as a dividing line between gardens or be purely ornamental. Hedges provide shade, privacy and can be an important wildlife habitat, but an untrimmed and uncared-for hedge can soon get out of control and ruin the look of any garden.

Know your hedge

Different hedges have different Hedge Trimming needs, so some quick research might help you on your way. Don’t trim old hedges too fiercely, or too much in one go, as the shock alone can kill them off. Fast growing hedges, such as conifers, can grow very quickly so need trimming three times a year for example, whereas a slower-growing evergreen hedge would be fine with one annual trim. If you are unsure on How To Trim A Hedge properly get in touch with us at Leaf Matters.

Seasonal variation

Most hedges need trimming in spring or summer, ideally, but some can be trimmed all year round. Remembering to water them during exceptionally dry or hot periods is also a good idea.
