Getting the best from your hedging

Do you need to reduce a hedge to avoid dispute with neighbours or the Local Authority?

For best results, we recommend trimming your hedges at least twice a year although some of our customers are happy with an annual visit.

Our experienced and qualified staff can care for hedges of any type and size, we can also supply and plant high quality deciduous or evergreen hedgerows to increase security or improve the look of your home and grounds. Please call us for more details on this service.

Is your Hedge too Tall?

Did you know that your Local Authority can ask you to reduce an evergreen hedge that is more than two metres in height.

This does not mean that all such hedges must be reduced or that you are committing an offence by having an evergreen hedge taller than two metres in height.However, under Part 8 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003, your neighbours can raise a complaint if they feel your hedge is interfering with their reasonable enjoyment of their property.

In such a case, the Local Authority will look into all relevant factors and decide whether you need to take any action and what that action should be.

Failure to comply with their decision could lead to a fine of up to £1000. But why take the risk of antagonising your neighbours at all? If your evergreen hedge is over two metres in height, consider asking Arborcure to reduce it before it causes any issues. This will also help you to keep on top of trimming.

John and his team turned up at the arranged time and did a wonderful job. The whole team were very friendly, polite and showed great respect for my property. Phoned several companies for quotes and Arborcure’s was the most reasonable. The trees look so much better for the work done. They left the whole area so clean that you wouldn’t even know they’d been there. Would recommend John and team to anyone.
