Format: Hardcover
The hedge has been in decline in the UK since the second world war, mainly because it was thought to get in the way of efficient, mechanised farming. Murray Maclean recognises that hedges are making a come back for practical, aesthetic and conservation reasons and he has written a truly authoritative book on establishing and maintaining hedges. He covers many different styles and functions and the best techniques, whether those techniques are traditional or modern, and he explains them in a way which makes it easy for you to follow.

A very interesting book covering the background and history leading modern hedgelaying, providing practical answers on "how to" and "why". A book that is easy to both read and to "dip into and out of" for people who have an interest (or requirement) to lay hedges to provide stock proof (or utilising hawthorn - burglar proof) natural fencing and neat but impenetratable boundary hedges.
With a little practical advice it allows people to break down a sometimes daunting challange of commencing on a new project with a long overgrown hedge into achievable, encouraging and rewarding segments.
There are nuggets of information and advice for people with all levels of experience or expertise, even one of which, if helpful, will more than justify the cost of the book.

Not as informative as it could have been. After I finished reading it, I still had no clear idea about hedges and hedge laying. I wouldn't recommend it.

This book is perfect for the beginner hedgelaying artisan. It is a comprehensive guide without being over fussy. It is encouraging, with a 'can do' attitude.
