Hedgelaying is a management solution for overgrown hedges widely practised throughout the UK and Europe during the winter months. A country craft that rejuvenates existing hedgerows by encouraging them to put on new growth, Hedgelaying improves the overall structure and strength of a hedge providing protection for crops and wildlife.
This two-day Introduction To Hedgelaying training course is delivered by professional hedgelayer Paul Matthews. Paul is a registered and active member of the South of England Hedgelaying Society and the National Hedge Laying Society of England & Wales. An active participant in Regional and National Hedgelaying competitions Paul was awarded the title of National Champion in 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2017 and is the current National Champion (2022).
Paul is also the 2022 South of England Hedgelaying Champion and has also won several re-growth awards this year too!
Paul was also very proud to be awarded the highest accolade of Supreme Champion status in 2015.
We also offer four and five-day training courses for those that wish to progress their hedgelaying skills further with the option of an NHLS Lantra assessment at the end of training.
