What better way is there, on a warm Sunday afternoon in February(?) than to do some tidying up of the garden? Beth's parents came round yesterday to have a good go at the two rows of beech hedges either side of the drive, and, with the help of a rather serious garden shredder, we managed to get both of them (save for a little bit that we're saving till next weekend!) down to less than six feet tall. It makes a huge difference, especially since they're not in leaf yet.
Here's a pair of before and after shots, as demonstrated by our ever-willing model (although, as you will no doubt spot, I have cheated somewhat!)

Good job. I've been attacking some large shrubs armed only with a pair of secateurs. I nearly bought a cheep pair of loppers the other day and now wish I had.Fitting all the cuttings into the broooown bin has been a skilful piece of work.
