Soulbury Millennium Green, Bucks. Relaying 18 yards ash hedge
I first laid this hedge in 2000 and subsequently trimmed it by hand, since when it had regrown vigorously once more. This time it was relaid to add height and density retaining a few live stakes to support the hedge, giving a final hedge about 6ft high and plenty of stakes I could use elsewhere.
