My hedge has a miraculous feature... it trims itselfzmemw16 wrote:ain't got a lawn
front is 30ft sq with side path, natural planting and a central square of paving, rear is 70ft x 30ft of non-descript concrete.
60ft of 15ft high of hedge ( a yearly short top and one side trim exercise ) and a WIP fence from other side's neighbour.
Every few months, the farmer goes past on the tractor, on his way to the adjacent hedgerows and runs his hedger over the front and top. That just leaves my side to do which I can manage with a pair of shears.
