Top Hedging related questions

A garden hedger prunes, trims, and shapes hedges and shrubs. They can also recommend hedge and plant varieties that are suitable for growing in your location.

There are many different types of hedging plants available, depending on your needs. Some popular varieties in Australia include Lilly Pilly, Photinia Murraya, Buxus, and Viburnum. Most hedging plants are adaptable to different climates. Smaller hedges will grow to about half a metre, and the tallest ones will grow up to 10 metres - you’ll need to choose a variety that’s the right size and scale for your yard.

It’s a good idea to book garden hedging 2-3 months to keep your hedge neat and tidy, although you may need more frequent trims during warmer months. If your hedges are intricately shaped or you have a variety that grows quickly, you may need to consider more regular maintenance.

A hedge trimming service will usually include leaf litter removal and disposal. They will also rake grass and clear your driveways and paths to make sure the area is free from leaves.

A well-maintained hedge may only need a quick tidy up, but if it’s been some time since you last had it trimmed, it could take 1-2 hours, depending on the size of your hedge.

The exact cost of hedging usually depends on how large your hedge is and how long it’s been since it was last maintained.

What does a garden hedging service include?

There are several reasons why you might consider hedging for your garden - privacy screening, attracting wildlife, creating boundaries, or adding colour. But hedges require regular maintenance to look tidy and stay healthy. Here’s how your garden hedging provider can help you keep your hedges in order:

Hedge trimming and shaping

Regular hedge trimming is the easiest way to keep your hedge thriving. Your garden hedging professional may use power tools for general trimming and shaping, as well as hand-held tools like secateurs for pruning. Some specialised hedge varieties can be trimmed into intricate shapes such as topiaries to line pathways or act as a feature in your garden. Your hedger will ensure there are no bare patches or exposed stems and that your hedge is cut slightly wider at the base so the bottom leaves can get sun exposure.

Hedge removal

If your hedge is diseased, unhealthy, or you’re just looking for a change to your garden landscaping, you can have your hedge removed. Your hedger will do some major trimming and cutting to remove leaves and branches. Then to remove the stump, they’ll dig a trench on both sides of the hedge to get to the root system. They’ll make sure they’re not digging where they could hit pipes or underground services. Disposing of the green waste is usually included with your hedge removal services. If the hedge was marking a boundary between you and your neighbour, you may need to consider building a fence to replace it.

Planting and landscaping

If you’ve just built a new house, or you’re redesigning an old yard, your hedging expert can advise on the best plant varieties and make other recommendations for your landscaping. Before planting, they’ll prepare the soil to ensure your new hedge and other plants have the best opportunity to thrive. Hedges need space to grow, so your hedger will plant them at least 1m apart.

Garden maintenance

When you book your hedging services, why not see if they offer other garden maintenance services as well? Your hedger may be able to mow your lawn, whipper-snip your edges, aerate your lawn or do a general yard tidy up for you, all in a single visit.

Help with hedging / plant to provide privacy


Turnpike Lane, Greater London

25th Mar 2022

Hello. I would like someone to come over and look at the baby trees I have in the back garden. These run along the back fence but I am not sure these would grow correctly to form an effective hedge to provide me with the privacy I need. I would someone to come and have a look at those and help me out with either advice to make them grow or quote to re-plant some of those if needed. The picture attached is from a year ago and some of these tree grew more while other either did not survive (for 3 of them) and other did not grow as much as others. The price I am budgeting for here is for you to come and have a look and then we can discuss further work
