Whether it’s for the beauty of the clean, sharp lines or for that added privacy they provide from your neighbours’, a perfectly sculpted hedge is hard to beat in the garden –but not hard to have. At Arbor Pride we offer a range of hedge trimming and tree services from the small ornamental hedge up to the very large wind or sun blocking screens that you may have in your garden – or wish to have.
Our tree services use qualified arborists who can work with any existing hedge with skill and precision – hedging trees or shrubs into a neat framework for your garden in order to create structure and style.
Hedges need regular care and maintenance to look their best – you should cut large hedges up to 3 times a year. Our highly skilled practitioners can work up to any height, using the correct tools, technique and equipment. Don’t risk yourself on an unsteady ladder, cutting a hedge you may find difficult to reach, but don’t settle for an unsightly, crooked hedge either. Our hedge-cutting specialists use string-lines and spirit levels to ensure it’ll be neat, straight and look great.
We can also establish a hedge to suit your garden needs – create that private outdoor space you may be after or perhaps even help to screen that unsightly corner or fence (or dare I say it, neighbour). Whether it be the formal ‘English garden’ feel that you’re after or the semi-formal look we can provide ongoing arborist care and assistance in all your hedging needs. A well-maintained hedge can be a great asset to any garden and can even add considerable value to your home.
The ‘Common Box’ Buxus sempirverens or ‘Japanese Box’ Buxus microphylla Japonica with its beautifully manicured look usually comes to mind when people think of hedges. But why not try an Australian native such as the Lilly Pilly, Murraya or even the Grevillea as an alternative? The ‘Coastal Rosemary’ Westringia fruticosa, native to New South Wales, has a delightful profusion of white flowers and is tough as old boots.
Other popular choices for hedges are fast growing conifers such as the Leyland Cypress Cupressocyparis leylandii, Sweet Viburnum Viburnum Odoratissum, michelia’s such as Michelia yunnanensis or even a dwarf form of Magnolia grandiflora. With their beautiful flowers the Camellia Sasanqua or C. Japonica are also a good choice for hedges.
Or, if you are looking for a focal point in the garden, or a range of symmetry to compliment those hedges then topiary, when done correctly, can offer a range of wonderful shapes to add that sculptural element to your home. Our arborists are skilled hedge timmers and clippers, so whether it’s a pyramid, spiral, tiers or the simple ball shape that you’re after, then our team can create and maintain that topiary form for you.
We offer specialised arborist services in all aspects of hedging and topiary, tree care and services to suit any garden no matter how big or small your needs.
