Hedging Tavistock

Hedge trimming and maintenance is a real skill. We are highly experienced in hedge reduction, hedge trimming and management of hedges of any height and depth. We also offer hedge removal and hedge replanting. Whether you require regular maintenance of your hedges or need us to improve the basic structure of your hedge so it regrows in a pleasing and manageable form; we are on hand to provide advice and a bespoke service. We have experience of planning and planting native mixed hedging such as in Cornish and Devon banks, boundary hedges, and hedges for screening. We can also carry out hedge laying.

Hedge Maintenance

Hedge maintenance is essential for keeping it in the best condition, as well as to ensure your property stays looking neat and tidy. Other benefits of regular management include:

  • Avoids dead, dark or diseased patches appearing.
  • Encourages fuller growth.
  • Increased flowering.
  • Clean and well-kept appearance.
  • Will keep footpaths and accessways clear.
  • Allows more light into homes and gardens.
  • Encourages wildlife habitats and native species such as wildflowers.


During our time on your property, we will always tidy up after ourselves and ensure that all trimmings are disposed of responsibly.

Hedge Planting

We also offer hedge planting services, so if you want to transform your garden and add some privacy, give us a call today. We can advise you on a range of different hedges from their colour and shade to their flowers.

Maintaining Broadleaf and Conifer Hedges

Trimming conifer hedges requires expertise as if cut back too hard, dead patches will be visible and won’t resprout. Depending on species, broadleaved hedges can be cut back once or twice a year in order to maintain their size, form and health. Field hedges and formal hedges in different settings are managed in different ways. Call us for expert advice on your hedges.
