Hedges & Shrubs

A hedge can provide an attractive natural boundary to your property, or be used to separate different areas of the garden, As well as providing a natural windbreak, it can also be a home to many species of birds giving them shelter from predators and providing an ideal nesting place for many. 

Whatever the type of hedge; conifer, evergreen of deciduous, it will need trimming through the year in order to look it's best. Note that it is an offence under The Wildlife and Countryside Act to disturb nesting birds. Always check first for birds nests before trimming hedges and shrubs.

Just Plants provide a reliable hedge cutting and shrub pruning service throughout the year, as well as winter pruning of apple and pear trees.
