Whether you have a newly planted hedge or a well-established one, regular trimming and pruning will help you to achieve the function and aesthetic you want for your garden.
Formative pruning for new hedges is usually carried out in winter or spring and maintenance pruning for both new and established hedges is generally done in in late spring or early summer. Informal hedges will probably only require one annual cut, but for formal hedging two and sometimes three trims will be needed. Regular pruning keeps hedges dense and compact, which means that they provide more effective screening and generally look better.
The types of trees or shrubs you have planted will dictate the manner in which the hedge cutting is undertaken.
Upright privet or hawthorn hedges should be trimmed differently to a bushy forsythia or hazel hedge, and conifers and evergreens should be treated differently again.
Given it is not as straightforward as it may look and knowing that hedging is such a highly visible part of the garden, it is worth making it the first gardening task that you outsource to a professional.
