The amount you prune back will depend on the type of hedge. We recommend that you start shaping the hedge as soon as practical. A formal hedge whether new or established, should be tapered so that it is wider at the bottom than the top.
Once the hedge is established, regular maintenance will ensure it keeps healthy as well as neat. Some can even cut the hedge by just judging with their eyes. Again, we recommend that it’s a good idea to set your lines with lengths of string taut between canes. Yes, it is probably more of an exact science than you think.
