Hedge laying (steeping in Devon) is the traditional way of managing hedgerows. Using billook, axe and saw, the stems are partially severed and bent over to form a living fence. There are many different styles of hedgelaying, the Devon way is to create a low and thick hedge along the top of a large bank. This course is suitable for budding hedgers of all skill levels or none.
