Saturday 19th January 2019

Crosspark, Coach Road, Newton Abbot, TQ12 1EW

Grid Reference: SX 859702

Instructor: Jeremy Weiss

Devon hedges are usually on a bank and are steeped (laid in the Devon style). However, where hedges are growing from ground level, a different style is required using stakes and binders to create a living fence. In Devon we call this "wriggle hedging". This course will help you to understand the diffent hedge laying styles and you will gain lots of experience in using axe, billhook and saw to create a beautiful, stock proof barrier.
