In recent years there has been a much greater appreciation of the enormous contribution that hedges make to the countryside. Today, their beauty, their ability to provide wind protection and contain livestock, their environmental importance and their significance as a wildlife habitat, are all widely recognized. Not surprisingly, this transformation in the way we view hedges has, in turn, produced a welcome revival in the ancient craft of hedgelaying.

The planting of hedges and the necessary preparation work. The use of trees int he hedgerow and the value of field margins. Weed, pest and disease control, and hedge cutting, maintenance and protection. The craft of hedgelaying and the tools and processes involved.
