Hedge Cutting in Stafford

Hedge Cutting in Stafford    Expert Box Hedging with Topiary Spiral in Stafford   Hedge Cutting by Gardeners in Stafford

We carry out a lot of hedge cutting in Stafford and the surrounding area. Some of our clients have us only to cut their hedges on an ad hoc basis. Other clients have us cut their hedges as part of their regular garden maintenance. We find that hedge cutting is a vital part of the garden maintenance as it makes such a dramatic visual impact when friends or family approach your property and the hedges are neat, tidy and all squared off. We use professional petrol Stihl hedge cutters, this enables us to get a super finish to the hedges ensuring sides and tops are all squared off and look fantastic. When cutting hedges it is important to think about what you are trimming as different types of hedges have different requirements.
