Hedge cutting in Welwyn

Hedge cutting service in Welwyn Garden City

Are your garden hedges in need of some attention? Hedge trimming is essential to keep your hedges in good health. Evoke Tree Services can provide either regular or one-off hedge cutting in Welwyn Garden City, St Albans, Harpenden and nearby areas.

Why and when to prune hedges

A well-maintained hedge provides a good, smart boundary to a garden, but if left unchecked, a hedge can soon lose its shape and end up casting unwanted shade. With a good pruning schedule you can keep hedges under control without too much effort.

Most evergreen formal hedges like to be trimmed two or three times a year, while they’re actively growing. Conifer hedges such as leylandii need regular pruning or these fast-growers will soon outgrow their location.

Trimming informal hedges depends on when they flower. Lavender, fuchsia, roses and other plants that flower on the current year’s wood are best pruned in early to mid-spring, while those that flower on old wood, such as forsythia, deutzia and berberis, should be pruned when the blooms fade.

We also offer tree pruning services.

DID YOU KNOW?

Privet should be trimmed at least twice a year, between May and August. Trimming encourages dense, even growth and make it easier to keep the hedge the same size. Privet can be pruned hard in April to reduce the size of the hedge.

  • 5 star review  Evoke Tree Services came to our rescue after a bunch of cowboys ‘rode into town’ to remove our back garden hedge and left the stumps in saying that wasn’t part of the deal. I should have spotted their spurs! Evoke was recommended to us, and they were in and out within the hour, everything done and dusted. Thank you Evoke for first class service. The old saying still stands: ‘Pay cheap, pay twice.’ We know where to go next time. 👍

  • 5 star review  Very pleased with the work carried out. Apple tree and four cypress trees reduced . The two guys that completed the work were polite and very helpful. Cleared away all cuttings and were very tidy. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

  • 5 star review  Recently Evoke Tree Services pruned my apple and pear trees for the second time, and cut my hedges back for the first time. I would highly recommend these lads who did a superb job and cleaned up all the cuttings afterwards. Nothing was too much trouble and I look forward to having them return next season for the same pruning. Laura, WGC.

  • 5 star review  I would highly recommend Evoke Tree Services. The guys did an excellent job cutting down a large Apple tree, that was dangerously leaning over, and grinding the stump away. They were professional, polite and it was great to see workmen following safety procedures and tidying up so well after themselves.

  • 5 star review  We would highly recommend this very professional team. We had a very large, overbearing larch tree which needed to be removed and asked a number of companies for quotes. Evoke not only came in with the best quote but we were very impressed with the skill levels shown and as we watched as the tree was taken down, we saw a team who obviously looked after their tools and vehicles extremely well, worked with safety always at the forefront, communicated well and did an extremely efficient job finishing with everything cleaned and tidied up. We would have no hesitation in using them again.
