Time for a chop!

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

The hedge, but I could also do with a hair and beard trim!

It’s now been 10 years, since we moved to the “Shire”, and in that time the privet hedge grown, to about 5-6 feet high, and 4-5 feet wide, the only problem is the width of the drive is disappearing, and becoming difficult to park the cars!

So time for a chop, but my Bro’ (http://groundscaper.co.uk/), a Royal Horticultural Society qualified Horticulturist told me to cut a small portion first, and check if there is any new growth.

I’ve well mulched the hedge, and also watered every night.

Privet Hedge maintenance complete

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Finally complete the border for the privet hedge today, the weather held off this afternoon to complete the rest of the border, Lindsey also help me, so it did not take much longer to complete the border for all the hedge and install the Hozelock water soaker. I just need to install the time I have in the fish house, so it can water the hedge twice a day, for an hour each time, and I need to add the fertilizer, and hopefully the hedge will grow and fill in the bare patches.

So if the weather is good tomorrow, cut the lawn and hedge!

More border clearing today, and tidying under the privet hedge, hopefully tomorrow, the new border will be complete, and I’ll be able to install the water irrigation system that arrived today! (and then it will probably rain!).

Privet Hedge Maintenance

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

After the harsh cold -16 degrees C winter, and the very dry spring, the privet hedge has taken a bashing. So time to give it some tender loving care. As you can see from these pictures, it’s lacking a lot of new growth. We’ve spent the afternoon, marking out a new border, so the lawn is not up to the base of the hedge, and tidy up underneath the hedge, to increase air flow, and later I’ll be installing a water irrigation system to regularly water the hedge everyday. The soil underneath the hedge is bone dry, and then later give the hedge a good feed.
