Due for a bit of a trim?

Due for a bit of a trim?

Are your hedges looking a bit shabby around the edges? Now is a great time to get trimming.

Hedges need trimming at least once a year, but as a general rule the more often you do them the better the result! More frequently trimmed hedges end up straighter, thicker and tidier.

Hedges have a tendency to grow out at the top which can shade the lower sections, making them see-through and unhealthy down low. The ideal shape for a hedge is for the face to gently slope inwards toward the top. Whether or not this is possible depends on how past trims have been completed and how regularly the hedge is trimmed.

If they aren’t regularly brought into line by someone who knows what their doing they often end up with an outward slope at the top which is the exact opposite of what you want. Additionally, not trimming often or hard enough can allow the hedge to grow wider and wider. This is a problem that is sometimes impossible to rectify depending on the species.

Some of the nicest hedges we maintain are on a three-monthly trimming cycle. Although it is often not possible or even necessary to trim so often, it can yield some outstanding results!

We take the hassle out of keeping your hedges looking spic and span. We work with you to come up with an appropriate maintenance schedule just for your hedges, and we’ll even contact you a few weeks out to check and see if you require us to come and give them a trim. It couldn’t be easier!

When you request a free quote, we arrange to visit and take a look at your hedges first hand and will provide you with an honest, expert opinion on what we think will best get you the result you’re after.

Don’t delay! Get your hedges looking tip-top today!


“…. I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and efficiency of the crew. The tree work was not straight forward, however it was clear from the outset that the crew had taken the time to think through the logistics and details of the job…..”

“We have been working with Tree King for the last five years.  During this time we have found them efficient, co-operative and very safety conscience during any tree removal.  They are polite and professional to deal with.  We thoroughly recommend Tree King and its staff for a great job well done.”

“Fast workers – scheduled within a week of contact at my convenience. I liked how professional and automated the acceptance of the contract and invoicing was. All within a single email. Also attention paid to how much I wanted my trees trimmed. And although three trees were stumped – cleaned up well after themselves. They did such a good job, I won’t be needing them for a couple of years. But when I do – I know who to come back to!”
