Hedges which are not properly maintained and cut are likely to become patchy and top heavy with ugly holes and a lack of growth and foliage, especially at the base of the hedge. Regular trimming will keep your hedge neat and allow fresh shoots to fill any unsightly gaps.

A hedge that is allowed to grow without attention will also spread outwards, using up more space in your garden and creating a significant patch of leafless branches inside that are going to look horrible when you do eventually cut it back. It may take several years to get back to its desired shape (if it ever does).

You may be wondering about the costs involved with hedge trimming in Bishops Stortford, and the reality is that hedge cutting prices in Bishops Stortford depend on a number of factors including the size of the property, whether the hedge waste needs to be disposed of, how high the hedges are, the number of hedges needing to be trimmed and what condition the hedges are in.

Can I Cut My Neighbour's Hedge in Bishops Stortford: This is quite an interesting question regarding hedges in Bishops Stortford, and of course, broadly speaking, it will be dependent on how friendly you are with your neighbours. Sometimes your neighbour will offer to cut your side of the hedge when they're clipping their own side of the hedge. Certain neighbours will perhaps not be so helpful and just leave you to cut your own side. In general you are free to cut any roots or branches of a hedge which grow into your garden from a public road or a neighbour's property. However, you are only able to cut them back as far as the property boundary, if you go further you could be charged for damages.

Privet Hedges Bishops Stortford: Among the most widely used varieties of hedge is privet, which is an evergreen shrub growing into dense, medium sized bushes. Privet is a perfect shrub for hedges because it grows quite slowly, forms a dense, compact bush and keeps its green colour all year round. Well established privet hedges can be clipped two or three times a year through the growing season to keep a neat shape and maintain a decent density of foliage. You may even try a little bit of topiary (clipping into fancy shapes) with privet although yew and box are better candidates for this process.
