When done the right way, regularly trimming a hedge helps keep it healthy and strong, it both encourages new growth and improves the root system making the hedge thicker and able to better withstand diseases and attacks by pests. A healthy, strong hedge looks prettier and serves its proper function in your garden ie form a boundary between your garden and your neighbours, give you an enhanced level of privacy and provide much needed shelter from strong winds.

Hedges that have not been regularly cut and maintained are likely to become patchy and top heavy with unsightly holes and a lack of growth, especially at the base. Routine trimming will keep your hedge compact and encourage fresh new shoots to fill any unwanted gaps.

A hedge that's allowed to grow without trimming will also spread itself outwards, taking over more room in your garden and creating a substantial patch of leafless twigs internally that will look dreadful when you do finally choose to cut it back. It may then take years to regain its optimal shape (if it ever does).

You might be curious about the cost of hedge trimming in Altrincham, and the truth is that hedge cutting prices in Altrincham depend on a number of factors including how many hedges need to be trimmed, the height of the hedges, the size of the garden concerned, what condition the hedges are in and whether you need the hedge waste to be disposed of.

Privet Hedges Altrincham: Undoubtedly, one of the most popular varieties of hedge is privet, which is a flowering evergreen shrub that grows into medium sized, dense bushes. Privet is a decent variety for hedges since it grows relatively slowly, forms a compact, dense bush and stays green all year round. Fully established privet hedges need to be trimmed 2 or 3 times a year throughout the growing season to maintain a nice shape and keep a good density of foliage. You could even try a little bit of topiary (trimming into fancy shapes) with privet although yew and box are more suitable varieties for this technique.
