Trimming a Copper Beech Hedge in Brimington, Chesterfield

The Copper Beech Hedge trim in Chesterfield for Mrs Baker has been one of our regular jobs for a while now. Every year we tend to the garden to keep it healthy and looking smart. Trimming the hedge is one of the more difficult jobs as it has reached quite a height now.

A tall Copper Beech hedge makes the garden private, and creates a wonderful backdrop to the garden. This is especially true in the autumn when the hedge turns that lovely Copper gold colour. This is obviously where the copper beech gets it’s name.

It’s important to train a Copper Beech hedge by regular annual trimming. This encourages steady, controlled growth. With patience and regular annual shorter trims the hedge will grow thick and lush. If you try and let the hedge grow to the required size and then trim it back, the results are not as good.

The Annual Hedge Trim

Copper Beech make wonderful hedges, but they can get out of hand and look untidy if they aren’t trimmed regularly. We trimmed the hedge and disposed of the cuttings, leaving the garden neat and tidy.
