I just attended the excellent two day hedgelaying course. Paul had endless patience with my questions, and explained all of the steps very clearly. I was so impressed with how much I was able to do, and it is great to learn from someone who clearly knows what they are doing. Lorraine laid on copious amounts of super-tasty food, with breakfast and lunch on both days.
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.
The hedge laying course put together by Paul and Lorraine really provided me with a fantastic introduction to the art of this craft. By taking us through the practice of what materials are used to construct the hedge and crucially how to create these materials, we were off to a sound start … I cannot recommend this course highly enough! Thanks to you both!
