What do you need to know about hedge trimming or removal?

The cost of having a hedge trimmed will depend on the size of the job. For a small basic garden hedge you can just hire a handyman to do the work, while for larger hedges you may want a professional gardener or even a tree surgeon. Certain tradesmen may have a limit on the height they will work at, so try to have accurate measurements for the hedge itself. Tradesmen that do hedge trimming will usually include waste disposal as part of their quote. Make sure of this, as you may prefer to get rid of the waste yourself to save money. Keep in mind that tradesmen will be much busier with jobs like these during certain seasons, so if you want the work done during spring or summer you should be prepared to pay more. Removing a hedge can be a difficult job depending on its type and size. Privet hedges for example have shallow roots and are relatively easy to remove, while leylandii can be significantly trickier. Unless the hedge is particularly large then it should be simple to get a quote over the phone, in which case it is better to get a quote for the entire job rather than an hourly rate. Again, you may be able to get rid of waste yourself to save money, though for larger jobs it is much quicker and simpler to have your tradesmen do it.

Be sure to collect several quotes to compare, including breakdowns, before making your choice of who to hire. Remember that your tradesmen will be working with potentially dangerous equipment and so it is important to make sure they have adequate coverage against accidental damage and liabilities. Do not allow a tradesman to take on a dangerous job unless they have experience doing so in addition to the correct safety equipment. Check customer reviews from previous jobs when you are comparing tradesmen, and look out to see if they are members of any national tradesmen’s organisations such as the Arboriculturalist Association or the Gardener’s Guild, as such groups enforce high standards for their members.

Great work from Metin on fixing a few things around the house, including installing TV bracket and shoe cabinets, trimming and sanding down door frames and installing new door frame floor separators. Metin was very professional and attentive to details, he advised on best course of action and left the areas cleaned after the work. Would definitely recommend him.
