My front hedge needs a trim, last year a School boy did it us, but we have had no leaflets through our door. Any recommendations would be helpful Thanks

Just let it grow uncontrolled. If anyone wants to get in they can nip in through the rear entrance.

Privets often look messy and patchy when 'trimmed', my advice is leave it bushy 'al la Francais' or cut the whole thing down (after checking for nests, etc) - cutting back to the wood-stubble is untidy and can cause a rash.

A nicely trimmed Privet out front is a joy to behold. Nothing too overgrown, fighting your way through an overly bushy privet is not fun and you can end up covered in the bugs that can hide within.

I object to uncontrolled ivy under the eaves, such things are unsightly and simply unnescessary in the 21st Century.

Tessaw Hi – Hedge – How big is it and do you have an electric trimmer and ladder?

Teesaw hangs up her Forumite white coat, makes an appointment at Foxtons to go buy in West Dulwich where the Forum is a lot more straightforward and where lunacy rates per square mile are far lower than in neighbouring ED.

Can a hedge ever be a bush and vice versa? Hmmmmm, puzzle.

Beats me why anyone would want to write about their privet hedge on a public forum.

A light trim from time to time will definitely help improve the overall appearance. It won't take you too long (you can just do it when you have a few moments in the evening or at weekends) and chances are if you don't have the right tool for the job you can probably borrow something from a neighbour. It can be a tricky job but just go around carefully and remember - you can always cut more off so don't go 'too short' straight away. In any case, if you make a mistake, it will grown back in a fairly short space of time so try not to worry about it.

Makes your cock look slightly larger too.

You guys crack me up.. Here I was having a very dullard day at work but not any more.. Are we to assume the lack of interaction from the original poster is significant?

Please come back and play with us..

By the way, don't clear your privet hedge away completely. It's just not a good look at all.

messageRe: Privet hedge
Posted by Michael Palaeologus 18 May, 2011 13:16

On the evidence of some of the DVDs I watch, a Handyman of the type that comes round to fix the TVs, Fridges and Plumbing of young ladies, might also be able to trim your privet at no extra cost.

Posted by katie1997 18 May, 2011 13:31

Does said Handyman use the Tradesman's entrance by any chance?

messageRe: Privet hedge
Posted by Loz 18 May, 2011 13:40

I think I've seen that DVD, MP. Is that the one where the privet is so overgrown the handyman has to go in really hard with a big chopper?

She's a bit of a "one" is our Tessaw
Here's a post on another section of the forum.

I think she want her front bush trimmed first, then down to the heavy business I think.

A taut bodied helping hand/labourer needed to assist with painting fence panels re-staining decking some heavy lifting as established plant pots need moving. Might suit a mature school or collage student needing to earn extra cash.

* not sure what a collage student is? but hey, she's got something in mind i'm sure

She's just not feeling herself, is she?

If the handyman is using the tradesmans entrance, does he need to wear any protection against anything nasty that may be there?

messageRe: Privet hedge
Posted by maxxi 18 May, 2011 16:44

not if he's small enough to nip in the cat flap

How does one deal with overgrown bushes round the back? Wet n, wild or chainsaw trim?

messageRe: Privet hedge
Posted by Loz 19 May, 2011 12:08

See a doctor.

messageRe: Privet hedge
Posted by Salsaboy 19 May, 2011 19:30

Would it help if 2 handymen were to tackle the problem at the same time? One dealing with the front and one dealing with the back?
