Ideally hedges should be trimmed annually; in this manner a mature hedge can be trimmed back to the previous cuts. This will maintain a healthy hedge with an even, dense appearance. If you have a hedge that has become overgrown and requires a reduction we can usually reduce and reinstate it at a more managable size.
K&S Treecare can organise a regular trimming schedule for your hedge, or where necessary we can do a full hedge assessment followed by more fundamental work.
If hedges are not maintained or are trimmed infrequently it becomes increasingly difficult to keep the hedge dense, even and attractive and gaps tend to form at the base over many years.
