25 yards neglected hornbeam hedge, Wigginton
A very unusual project making a recognisable hedge from this long neglected row of old hornbeam which had grown out over the verge towards the light.  The young laurel hedge behind the hornbeam will now be removed.

Something
              of a challenge!!!!

  Barton le Clay, Beds.  Relaying a 29 yard plum hedge using live stakes
I previously laid this hedge in November 2002 - see here - and latterly the owner had let it grow up again.  The original laid stems were still sound so rather strip them out, the new growth was laid into the existing hedge retaining live stakes for a taller and thicker overall result.
