 Hedge Cutting in Knutsford using Ladders    Large Boundary Hedge Cutting In Knutsford    Regular Maintenance for Hedges in Knutsford

Hedge cutting is just one of the garden maintenance jobs we carry out for our customers. We carry out a lot of hedge cutting in Knutsford, Cheshire and the surrounding areas. You can see from these pictures what a difference trimming a hedge can make to the overall neatness of a garden.

This particular example is a beech hedge or Fagus sylvatica. The beginning of September is the ideal time to cut them as they will not grow again until March. This means that by pruning your hedges in September they will look as good as the day you cut them for a whole six months! When cutting the side of the beech hedge, you should start at the bottom and work upwards. Re-trimming the side of the hedge will help to get it neat and flat with no leaves sticking out. Once the side has been cut you can then cut the top of the hedge – bevelling the hedge cutters gives a better cut. Always ensure that your hedge cutters are sharp to achieve a clean, crisp cut.

As you can see the hedge looks really neat and tidy and will remain so until March next year when it will start growing again.

We cover the North Staffordshire and South Cheshire areas where we carry out all types of garden maintenance, including hedge cutting, mowing, pressure washing and landscaping work. If you live in the Knutsford or Cheshire area and require a quote for hedge cutting then please contact us.
