Hedging and Small Tree work

Regular pruning of your trees and shrubs should be done each year. This will ensure that your trees and bushes stay healthy and in good shape. Different types of shrubs and trees need different tree management. At Stephen Huxtable’s Garden Services, I am qualified to ensure that your bushes get the right treatment at the right time of year to always be at their best.

Most deciduous trees are best pruned when dormant, in late autumn or winter and should not be pruned early as they can bleed sap if cut at this time of year and risk disease. There are some exceptions to this general rule such as maple, horse chestnut, birch, walnut and cherry trees which should be pruned mid-summer after new growth has matured. The knowledge of the different trees is vital so always ensure your treasured garden trees are cared for by a skilled arborist. Conifers require little pruning except for the removal of dead or diseased branches in late summer.

Major tree surgery, chainsaw work and any pruning which is substantial, high, inaccessible should be done by a qualified expert.

I have obtained the following qualifications NPTC (National Proficiency Tests Council) Qualifications:

Level 2

- Certificate in Arboriculture
- Maintaining and operating a chainsaw
- Felling and processing small trees
- Felling and processing medium trees

Hedges require formative pruning for their first couple of years after planting which is usually carried out in winter or spring. After this, maintenance trimming is carried out, usually once a year for informal hedges and twice a year for formal hedges. Maintenance trimming is generally carried out between spring and summer. Hedges are usually one of three types: uprights, stocky or flowering. The trimming of hedges needs to take account of the type of hedge being cared for so it is important to choose a gardener who knows what he is doing!



Garden fencing is needed for many reasons It marks your boundaries. It can provide privacy and security and it can add elegance to your home. It is important to choose the correct fencing for the job so that it will last and look good throughout its life.

Installing fencing well is not easy and needs a thorough understanding of the different types and a methodical approach to installation. There are choices to be made about the types of wood used and how the fencing posts are secured into to ground.

Stephen Huxtable Gardening Services have fitted every type of fencing for both small and large boundaries. Please call me to discuss your exact requirements. 

  • Close-board fencing – close-board is made up of overlapping vertical boards of timber. This is the strongest and heaviest panel. It gives you complete privacy and is ideal for boundary fencing.
  • Overlap fencing - this is made from overlapping horizontal timber boards. It also offers a high level of privacy as it has no gaps.
  • Palisade - you get both visibility and good security from this traditional picket-type fence.
  • Many fences can have trellis added to add a touch of decoration and increase the fences height. This also allows an area for climbing plants to cover.
