Hedgelaying pics

Recommended Posts

Yes Doug to all your questions. The estate I have been working for does not fence after the hedge has been layed.

You need a good hedge and leave the brash one one side. NHLS - Home page

Love to see an "after" Shot. Never seen anything like this down our way.

It looks like the base of the tree is almost cut through to lay it over, i take it that it fully recovers and grows away nicely?


The first pic of this sequence is now in it's second summer since laying, the others are of the hedge I did this winter, one shot of a stump, about 2" diameter and it is already regenerated 4 shoots, ai'nt nature brilliant.

One I'm doing at the minute, been layed about 20-30 years ago at a guess, gapped up with blackthorn at some point and then flailed umtil about 7 years a go and left to regrow for laying, so its a bit interesting :001_cool:

Nice job :thumbup1: Not quite sure what style mines classed as, think its a cross between midlands and welsh :001_cool::laugh1:


not a expert on different styles but looks very welsh to me. if midlands would have one row of stakes and binders on top. maybe breckon style. but nice job.
