Event : Hedgelaying

Event details

  • Price: £75
  • Topics: Countryside skills

The purpose of hedgelaying is to restore a hedge that has become sparse at the base, or has grown without being trimmed.  

Hedgelaying thickens a hedge therefore giving more shelter for livestock on farms and a habitat for nesting birds and wildlife.  During this one-day introductory course, you will learn the techniques of hedgelaying and have a go at transforming a wild unkempt hedge into a growing boundary, using the tools of the trade.

Tutor: Dave Marpole

Dave Marpole was taught the craft of hedgelaying by his grandfather on the family farm. He now spends many weeks in the winter months laying hedges for farmers on stewardship schemes.
