Help with hedge ident

Can anyone help with a name for the hedge in the attached photos? I think maybe a type of laurel but not sure as I do lawns not plants. It's in my own garden and I want to move the hedge due to It being in a daft place. Can it be replanted again,  I guess it's not been in long as it comes out as whole rootballs with a good tug . We have only been here 6 months so not sure of history. Many thanks Chris

Stolen tools

Hi All While working at a wholesalers maintaining their ground in a Leicester   I had a load of tools stolen. We all know what it's like when we need three or four power tools to be used one after another and obviously the best and safest way is to return each tool to our vans when not in use. Well I didn't and put them into a shopping trolley and trundled them behind me. In it was a Dewalt radio naturally tuned to Radio 2, Stihl strimmer with 145 degree hedge cutter attachment, Stihl blower ,…

Altering Fence line between properties and awkward customer

Hi to all.   We have recently finished a full garden landscape and as part of the project the client asked us to replace a small fence. The fence belonged to the neighbour so we sought their consent before carrying out any work. We replaced the fence and put it back in exactly the same place as it was before so as not to alter the boundary. Now that the job is complete the client has complained that the fence tapers in and is not parallel with the fence on the opposite side. I pointed out he…

I have been asked by a customer to supply and plant a new plant for their hedge as there is a gap, they want the same type but I am not 100% sure what it is, does anyone know what this is? I think it might be an evergreen spindle but not sure. The current plants in the hedge are just over 2m High. Thanks for any help.

Cheats / hacks / tips to speed up Graveyard mowing / strimming..

Last year i tok on my local church graveyard.. It doesnt pay particulary well but its less than a minutes walk from my house. The gravestones are all over the place and its literally 2 hrs of striming, an hour and a half on my small ride on and about 45 mins with my mower.. Its all the striming of small banks and round all the graves that seems to take ages.  Im also probably over fussy with doing it a good job.   Any tips or thoughts on how to make it easier / quicker?
