15 yards garden hedge, Steeple Claydon, Bucks. South of England style

This was a typical garden hedge that had become overrun with ivy until a lot of time was spent stripping the ivy out (you can still see the ivy in the adjoining section in the before pictures). The hedge was starting to put out new growth nicely since the ivy had gone, but this was not going ot fill in the gaps at the bottom of the hedge. The stems were also old and quite brittle; again typical of such hedges.

Laying this hedge has given it a completely new lease of life.
