Wendy's Hedge Hell

A story about a hedge ...

We arrived at Wendy's garden for the very first time and found her 11ft Laurel hedge that ran around the permitter of her entire house and garden was completely brown at the top and had a rather sad case of the miss pruning blues, she was a little shell shocked and cross with the previous company she had used and how the hedge now looked. 

Unfortunately we couldn't work miracles, and this took time, expertise and a long term game plan to resolve and put right which we immediately set about doing, but the theme of this story is far too common. Wendy unknowingly had contacted a company for a hedge prune for her Laurel at the wrong time of year and the garden company that attended simply did what she had asked and did not advise otherwise.

 

Ideally what you we would want in that situation is for the experts at any garden company to advise the client that this was the wrong time of year to prune Laurel and the potential consequences and damage it may cause if they were to proceed.

 

We have not interest in criticising other businesses but we do see this sort of thing happen quite often, and it gives gardeners a bad rep. 

TOP TIP: Ensure that you use reputable trained gardener to conduct the work on your hedges, and asking what qualifications or experience they have is totally acceptable. Alternatively check with them before they start about whether the timing is right for the particular plant they are about to tackle, and ensure you feel confident that they have the right tools and the right expertise to complete the job.
