Hedges are a popular feature of domestic and commercial properties, offering boundary control, privacy, aesthetic appeal and wildlife habitats, and it is important to keep them in good condition. Professional hedge maintenance from our tree surgeons keeps your hedge healthy and ensures you continue to enjoy its benefits while preventing disputes with neighbours. No job is too big or too small for BG Valley, and we offer hedge cutting, shaping and ongoing maintenance for domestic and commercial properties in Maidstone, Sittingbourne and Kent.
No matter your requirements, we provide a custom plan for hedge pruning and maintenance, whether you need one-off services or an ongoing cutting plan.
With specialist tools and over 10 years’ industry experience, we keep your hedges healthy, manageable and looking their best. The proper care our tree surgeons provide ensures you have a beautiful border that meets your needs, whether that’s privacy, wind protection or a stylish natural feature.
In addition, keeping your hedge in good condition will attract birds and other wildlife to your garden or property in the Maidstone and Sittingbourne areas. This adds to biodiversity and allows you to enjoy the sights and sounds of various wildlife.
Furthermore, our hedge cutting services keep hedges at a reasonable, manageable height, helping prevent potential disputes with neighbours. Please see our previous work for examples of the expert hedge pruning services we provide.
While it may be tempting to prune your hedge yourself, there are many benefits to hiring the professionals at BG Valley. With many years of experience and industry training, we are adept at working on hedges of every size and type, making sure to use suitable methods and equipment for cutting and shaping. As well as ensuring the best results, this maximises safety.
Our tree surgeons also have thorough knowledge of hedge issues and UK species. This means we recognise even early signs of disease or other problems and can provide expert advice and services to combat the issue and keep your hedge healthy. We also adhere to best practice and regulations concerning hedge cutting to deliver safe, high quality services that comply with all laws and protections.
Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, it is an offence to take, damage or destroy active bird nests or eggs, or take, injure or kill chicks or adults. As such, when undertaking hedge cutting services in Maidstone and Sittingbourne, it is important for us to check hedgerows for nesting birds before carrying out work.
If we find any active nests, which is most likely between February and August, we will have to wait until the chicks have fledged before cutting your hedge. This also applies to some tree surgery services, such as tree felling.
