Sarratt, a 120 metre mixed maiden hedge under trees at the bottom of a traditional orchard planted by the clients. Laid South of England style. The client had also planted the hedge and wanted it laying to thicken it.

Sheep are used to keep the grass in check in the orchard. The one on the right moonlights as a Boris Johnson lookalike

The large trees behind the hedge are the original field boundary onto a sunken lane. Some limbing up of the trees has been done to let more light to the hedge.
