Time for a haircut.

Today I'm going to cut this Leylandii hedge as it's looking a bit shaggy and I want to get it done before the weather closes in. This will ensure that it looks neat and tidy all through the winter months.

I like cutting this hedge, as planting it 19 years ago was the very first job I did when I started here. I'll be using a Stihl long reach hedge trimmer, as I find you get a better perspective of what you are doing when you are stood back slightly, plus I don't need a ladder to reach the top. With a standard trimmer, I have to keep stepping back to look at what I've just done, which is a bit of a pain...especially on some the long hedges I have to contend with...consequently, I haven't used a short one for years now.

Anyway...this kept me busy for an hour or so this afternoon.

 

This is an old pic of the hedge trimmer...I won't be needing the pole pruner attachement today.
