About the Course

Hedge laying has a huge heritage and conservational value. With the wildlife benefits associated with hedges, it is really important to continue this skill.

With this full day training session, you will cover the fundamentals of hedge laying and all the necessary skills and techniques that are required for successful hedge laying. We will be laying hedges Cheshire style, as this is most common style locally.

This course is designed for absolute beginners wanting to learn, through to the more experienced hedge layer wanting to practice and improve. With multiple trainers available on the day, the course can be adapted to your specific needs.

By the end of the day you will have laid your own section of hedge, which will become a wildlife haven for years to come.
