12 Hedge Cutting Ideas...

1. Spiral Topiary

One fun hedge cutting idea is to introduce some spiralled topiary to your garden - this can add a funky vibe to your hedges and shrubs. A mid-range height and interesting curves are essential elements of the spiralled topiaries. Read this article for tips on how to trim topiary.

2. Walkway Border Pattern

Create a walkway border frame by changing up the curves and lines of every other bush. Vary the heights between the shapes to make them stand out.

3. Small Potted Boxwoods

If you wish to lend a “tree” look to a hedge, this idea is for you. This look is perfect for a front porch or in a corner nook of the garden. The best thing about them is the fact that they’re potted, so you can transport them around your garden until you find the perfect location to place them.

4. Varied Sizes of Round

This is perfect for smaller hedge plants. Adopting a few lines of various-sized boxwoods neatly trimmed into spheres can add visual interest.

5. Solid Hedge Border

Some solid hedge borders can dress up a patio or walkway area beautifully. The hedge adds colour and serves as an instinctive welcome mat for your guests.

6. Picket Fence-ish

To create a different look, trim tall hedges as individual parts, and not as one whole hedge. This will offer great lines and improve the look of the rest of your outdoor space too.

7. Garden Hedge Maze

If you fancy a maze in your garden and are lucky enough to have the space, opt for this look to create a sophisticated garden area. Plus the kids will love it!

8. Mimic the Structural Landscape

If you prefer a no-fuss trimmed hedge, consider cutting the hedge to match up with the other landscape points. For proper visual synchronisation, pay attention to the details.

9. Angular

Shrubs and hedges that show their right angles can create quite a striking look because they don’t look that way naturally. This design lends a well-kept and contemporary look to your exterior.

10. Classic Courtyard

Trimmed trees tend to rise from the lower hedge and are trimmed in spherical shapes to give a classic, clean look. With clean lines, the trimmed hedge provides a soft-yet-crisp ground border.

11. Geometric Precision

If you have a large hedge, you have enough to work with to create something geometrically striking. Keep the angles sharp and curves balanced because the beauty of a geometrical form is in its precision.

12. Softened Shrub Sections

How about creating a pile of soft green pillows in your garden? Treat each primary branch like its own island and trim a spherical shape out of it. It can lend a beautiful and unexpected texture.
