The project remit was to remove the existing hedge (at 15ft wide and 17ft high, it was too costly to maintain) and replace with a completely new hedge.

Here the hedge is being cut to the ground and the roots being dug out with a mini digger. Such a shame for a beautiful hedge, but at 15ft wide and 17ft high, it was too costly to maintain.
A trench was then dug and the fencing put in place. The fence goes under ground to prevent rabbits from digging under it.
