Beech Hedge Reduction - Shears and Secateurs

Recommended Posts

No trimmers. Loving these therapeutic Japanese tools. A joy to work with. I love the way it slows down your workflow and you can take great pride of doing a proper job. The crispness of the cuts is something you can't get from trimmers.

You must be at one with the universe . A job very well done if a bit time consuming . Poles apart from the snot and crap left from a tractor and flail yet they still grow back .

A few hours. I had my lad annoying the neighbours with the German tools. The hedge right-angles round the back of the shed in image two, so there was more work than what is shown in the images. A few larger stems had to be lopped. Good results can be had with German tools, but the best cuts can only be done the slow and old-fashioned way.

Sure, won't make a tuppenceworth of difference to the regrowth though.

 

Best way is take a good petrol hedge cutter and cut that down in 4 or 5 sweeps so the little bits fall through the hedge and you don't have to clear them up.:001_smile:

Lovely job can't beat doing things properly I wish I could do more hedges by hand but customers aren't willing to pay that little extra it will cost in time top work!
