Tips & Tricks

Hedges are all-rounders of the garden. They serve as ornaments, biotope and visual protection. It is difficult to imagine a cityscape without hedges, especially because there are hardly any limits to the variety. If you decide on a hedge, you can choose between evergreen or deciduous (coniferous or deciduous woods), fast or slow growing plants. Some of them are poisonous, thorny or prickly, while others impress with their splendid flowers and scents. But they all have one thing in common: regular hedge trimming is a must for a healthy, dense and beautiful hedge. Please note the following four tips.

| The right tool for hedge trimming

The AL-KO HT 4055 battery hedge trimmer is the right choice for emission-free, cordless and low-noise hedge trimming. The light, handy hedge trimmer from the AL-KO 36 V family ensures an optimum cutting pattern with its diamond-ground blade and, thanks to its sophisticated ergonomics and rubberised handle, makes for comfortable working. Hedges can be cut quietly, safely and without fumes. 
Mains operated electric hedge trimmer AL-KO HT 600 Flexible Cut. With its adjustable, ergonomic handle and the unique safety cable, which effectively prevents the cable from being cut, the shears ensure comfort and safety in every position. 

| The right clothing for hedge trimming

Some species of hedges, such as thuja, are poisonous and can cause allergic reactions on contact with skin. Thorns, sharp branches or flying cuttings are also a health risk. You should therefore wear appropriate clothing when cutting. It is recommended that you wear sturdy shoes, long-sleeved clothing, and protective goggles and gloves.

| The right shape for hedge trimming

Shapely, dense hedges are a feast for the eyes and require some skill and tactics. A taut string helps you to maintain height, direction and shape. Cut a little at first and refine as necessary. Hedges are always cut trapezoidally, i.e. wider at the bottom than at the top. This gives the lower branches enough light and the hedge stays nice and bushy everywhere.

| Extra tip:

Dense and high hedges not only protect owners from annoying glances, but also possible burglars. Statistics show that houses with lush hedges are more often affected by theft. Therefore, plant hedges at a sufficient distance from buildings to create the largest possible open space. It is also advisable to trim the hedges before travelling. This suggests your presence, and possible intruders are more easily exposed to the eyes of passers-by or neighbours.
