 We tackled the second half of the ivy choked blackthorn and hawthorn wild hedge that runs across the bottom of our garden between us and the school field. It was another hot day of cutting and sawing down the side branches and this time, there were some massive ones! One in particular, hanging way over our living quarters, was a big fat 6 inch diameter branch about 12 feet long!

But we managed to get it all cleared and the whole line looks a lot better now.

And all the smaller pieces went through the shredding machine and we have filled up a second “ton” bag .. and some!!

The hedge will eventually be completely replaced with a proper fencing when the garden and veg/fruit patch is landscaped after the house is built, so it is rather wild with Ivy growing in it and mostly left to its own devices to enjoy nature at its best!!
