Paul's hedgelaying

Hedgelaying in Bucks, Beds and Herts
The first and largest hedgelaying website

November 2000

The Old Mill Stanbridge, 60 yards hawthorn, South of England

This hedge had become difficult for the client to manage and was hiding the view beyond

Before ...
 

... after
 

Some of this hedge was pretty chunky

Soulbury Millennium Green, 36 yards species rich hedge of hawthorn, blackthorn, ash, field maple and elm, Midland Style

Laying the front hedge was part of the work done for the Soulbury Millennium Green project

Looking to the end with work in progress
 

Looking back to the start with rosehips standing out
 
 

This section is predominantly field maple ...
 

... and here it's mostly hawthorn
 


115 yards hawthorn, blackthorn, ash, sycamore, goat willow, Midland Style, Cublington Road, Wing.

Two hedgelaying weekends instructing BTCV volunteers

This is about as challenging a hedge as one can take on with volunteers and they did a really good job on it ...
 

... as you can see; there's a lot of big material in this hedge
