The commercial work we undertake includes Hedgelaying, Hedge-planting as well as building Hazel Arch’s and creating living Willow structures in situ.
The materials used for our commercial services are all coppiced locally within the borough of Reigate & Banstead. The material is harvested during the coppicing season commencing in October through to mid-March the following year. We use various materials including Hazel, Chestnut and Willow.
Much of our commercial work is booked in advance, on a first-come-first-served basis. An initial consultation is usually required and may include a site visit before a quotation can be provided.
Commercial Hedgelaying is undertaken by a true professional Paul Matthews, an accredited member of the National Hedgelaying Society and South of England Hedgelaying Society.
Working with Lorraine and Paul at Hedges and Hurdles has been an absolute pleasure. They have both been adaptable to changing circumstances whilst still able to deliver the highest quality end product, whether it be training courses or contracted hedge laying.
We had a really lovely afternoon at this event. We were taught how to do basic willow weaving to make lovely, useful, bird feeders. Lorraine was a great hostess and teacher, generous with her time and expertise. The setting was relaxing and peaceful. I will be booking again soon.
