Basic Working Techniques:

Hold the machine as close to your body as possible to get the best balance. When trimming a hedge, the engine should always face away from the hedge. Work with a swinging action from the bottom upwards. When trimming the sides, make sure that the tip does not touch the ground and do not rush the job, but work steadily until all the branches have been cut back cleanly. Never work from a ladder, stool or any other raised position that is not fully secured. When cutting formal hedges the term, “cutting the hedge to a batter” should be applied: the hedge needs to be slightly tapered on both sides so that the base is wider than the top and light can reach the bottom of the hedge, this will also give stability and stops the hedge collapsing under snow, it is better to do this a little bit each time you trim or from the first trim on a four to five year old hedge, rather than hacking hard into it.

Before cutting your hedge, check that there are no birds nesting in it, because it is an offence under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 to damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built. The bird nesting season usually runs from 1st March to 31st July. It is not advisable to trim conifer hedges after August, as this might encourage bare patches to develop in the hedge.

Suggested guidelines for trimming some of the more popular hedges: Buxus Sempervirens, more commonly known as Box, should be trimmed two or three times during the growing season. Ilex Aquifolium (Holly) should be trimmed once in late summer. Ligustrum (Privet) needs trimming during the garden season two to three times. Taxus Baccata (Yew) should be trimmed once in the summer and again in the autumn. Fagus Sylvatica (Beech) needs to be trimmed once in late summer. Crataegus Monogyna (Common Hawthorn) needs trimming twice, once in summer and again in autumn.
