Soulbury, Bucks.  Relaying 18 yards ash.  I first laid this hedge in 2000 and subsequently trimmed it by hand, since when it had regrown vigorously once more.  This time it was relaid to add height and density retaining a few live stakes to support the hedge, giving a final hedge about 6ft high.  There were also plenty of spare stakes left extracted for use elsewhere.
