Hedges that are not regularly maintained and cut are likely to become straggly and top heavy with unsightly holes and a lack of growth and foliage, particularly at the base of the hedge. Regular trimming will keep your hedges compact and encourage fresh shoots to fill those unwelcome gaps.

A hedge that is allowed to grow without cutting back will also spread outwards, taking over more room in your garden and generating a big area of leafless branches inside that are going to look horrid when you do eventually cut it back. It could possibly then take several years to regain its optimal shape (if it ever does).
