Latest Southside Job:
Back to the southside of Glasgow here for some hedge cutting and tree maintenance over in Giffnock. As can be seen in the picture Nick is in full high vis PPE. As for the hedge this one was a mix of privet with some Ivy poking thought it. Hard to distinguish between the two from the picture as they are both dark green.
An interesting thing about private hedging is that its leaves change colour as it ages, much like our hair only it goes from light green to dark green.
Nick was trimming this up to have a boxed effect by keeping the angle of his trimmer consistent as he sweeps up the hedge. Over time time, regular trimming like this will train the hedge into a beautiful thick screen of green leaves.
Here we where called out to Newton Mearns in Glasgow’s Southside for a leylandii hedge reduction. These hedges are very common and the quickest growing hedges that we have in Britain. They are very hardy and take to most soil types which is why they are so common.
For this job we where to remove around 3 feet in height while keeping a consistent level on the top which followed the gardens slope.
As can be seen we used canes and string line to get the level right then scored through the hedge with a chain saw . We then switched back and fourth between a hedge cutter and a chainsaw as we encountered some thicker branches.
If looking to attempt this kind of job on your own then one thing to remember is the amount of waste that is left. So when budgeting for a professional company to do the work take into account that at least the same price of a skip could be charged out just for the waste to be removed to the dump.
