...and after

View from further down before, you can just see one of two large holly standards...

...both holly now visible and a rare picture of me...

...and finished. The two holly are quite tricky to see but just left of centre

Soulbury Millennium Green, Bucks.  Relaying 18 yards ash hedge

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 and plenty of stakes I could use elsewhere.
