Hedgelaying

Event details

  • Price: £80
  • Topics: Countryside skills

The purpose of hedgelaying is to restore a hedge that has become sparse at the base, or has grown without being trimmed. Hedgelaying thickens a hedge therefore giving more shelter for livestock on farms and a habitat for nesting birds and wildlife. During this one-day introductory course, you will learn the techniques of hedgelaying and have a go at transforming a wild unkempt hedge into a growing boundary, using the tools of the trade.

This course takes place outside so please dress for the weather and bring a strong pair of thorn-proof gloves, and wear sturdy footwear.
