So a few weeks later on a typical wet summer evening I hosted a group from www.sla.dk at Scotney Castle to explain hedge laying, and look at some examples. We looked at newly planted hedges, and battled the nettles to look at how we pleach and lay a plant, then we examined the regrowth on our training and competition hedges. We discussed the economic and environmental arguments for hedge laying, and saw some examples from the Scotney Volunteers.
SLA creates modern, adaptable cities that inspire community and diversity through innovative use of nature, design, sustainability and technology.
If you have a hedge laying question please do get in touch, if you have a challenging urban environment which you want to regenerate please contact SLA.
