Eythrope, Aylesbury. 99 yards hawthorn hedge. A young and tall hedge that, apart from a short section at the start, had not been laid before. With so much material present retaining live stakes to support the hedge was simplest and cheapest.

Bierton, Aylesbury. Second section, 39 yards hawthorn. Laid South of England as very tall and leggy and had to be laid very flat to fill the gaps.
Bizarrely sited in a shallow ditch, work was variously delayed by flooding, snow and high winds.
A large collapsed black poplar by the hedge was pollarded by a tree surgeon first.
Dense brambles reaching the road removed by the client in advance
.

Very tall and leggy, laid before and a real tangle...
 

...and more of the same!
