Our customer in Harrow had put an extension to the back of their home and required a design and plan for a private outside area for entertaining guests and family.
The hedge needed to be instant and evergreen and one that could be kept formal and tidy, and due to the money already spent on the building works, it needed to fit into the budget that the customer had allowed for the landscaping works.
The hedge we recommended and agreed with our customer was our outstanding Elveden instant hedges of Western red cedar, (Thuja plicata), a conifer ideally suited for hedging.
The first step was to carefully create a trench and excavate the soil by hand.
The Elveden instant hedge was delivered to London and unloaded from the truck and machine carried in using our Avant telescopic handler attached with a special lifting bar and three soft strops that ensures that the hedges do not get damaged during the installation process. This had to take place whilst building work was still ongoing and space was limited.
Our staff and machinery had to carry out this work with care and expertise.
Our unique Elveden instant hedges are measured to the length required then carefully cut and lifted at the nursery in Thetford, Norfolk, then loaded onto trucks and delivered to site where our planting teams carry out the installation, joining them together to form a, fully formed instant hedge.
