We believe this practical handbook is the most detailed reference available on hedge laying, and gives clear practical advice for anyone wanting to master this craft.

Throughout this handbook many regional styles are described, advice is also given on choosing suitable species for a new hedge, as well as planting techniques and aftercare. Construction and repair of Cornish hedges are also included.

Hedges are an important feature of the British countryside, as well as being a valuable wildlife habitat.

Neglect, rather than removal is now the greatest threat and many hedges need laying to encourage new growth from the base.
