170 yards mixed maiden hedge, Stansted
This substantial hedge was planted as a double staggered row and there was enough material to leave alternating live stakes either side of the hedge rather than staking and binding.  This was both cost effective and gave a very strong finish

Goats the far side especially fond
              of hornbeam!
Cute, but hungry!


Live stakes alternate each side of
              the hedge
