Hedge Removal

When Hedge Replacement Becomes Necessary

Sometimes, due to age, neglect or winter damage, a cedar hedge can become too large or damaged to be worth the effort of maintaining it. Keep in mind a large overgrown hedge can only be cut back so much (approx. 1/4 of its height can be removed from the top and in a lot of cases only around 1/8 of the width can be removed). Remove more than this and it will case permanent damage to the hedge. This is when removal may become your best option. At Hedge King we offer a complete hedge replacement service. We provide:

  • A free consultation to decide the best way forward for your situation
  • A highly experienced crew which will remove your hedge using professional and modern equipment
  • Removal of the old stumps so that planting of new hedges, shrubs, gardens or simply sod is as easy as possible
  • Installation of high-quality topsoil (if required) to help correct the grade of your turf area which can become uneven under old or well-established hedges
  • A complete cleanup of the area to remove all hedge debris or damage
