When’s the best time to cut my hedge?
Regular Hedge-cutting will over the course of some years thicken up the foliage and provide a better screen for privacy and better nesting conditions for wildlife. Most people will trim a hedge 2 -3 times a year.
If you wish to manage your hedges for access, tidiness and a neat garden many people do chose to trim a hedge either around May and June time, because of the amount of growth a hedge can put on in the spring / summer months. Or during September / October time to trim back to manage and maintain future growth. This is providing no nesting birds are observed.
What happens if I have birds nesting in my hedge?
It is illegal to disturb nesting bird-life so trimming in the nesting season can only take place if the hedge has been observed to have no nesting birds. Not all hedges will contain nests, especially in areas with high cat numbers.
Nesting season is generally during March to August. If you wish to manage your hedges to maximise its wildlife potential then its best to avoid these months and let the hedge grow out and provide decent cover for nesting.
