"Not too late at all. Better now, as the hedge is going into dormancy, than early March, when the sap is rising again. A late frost in the spring could kill off any buds that you have stimulated by cutting in Feb/ early March. "

Shrubs, Trees, Foundations, (Underground drainage pipes?)

Hi All,I periodically get asked the question "Is this planted too close to the house?". I can rarely give an authoritative answer, and usually say it is a specific area of expertise and it may be best to contact the local council.Am I missing a trick here? Does anyone know of any definitive references for this? Should I just do a multiple Google search and combine the result I find? Yes, I know, that sounds terrible. I'm just looking for the realities of it. I'm trying to make life easier for…

We're south of england, but frosts are happening and I give it two weeks before most trees are completely bare.Are there any issues cutting hedges, particularly deciduous ones like hornbeam, so close to winter/in to winter?

Best Stihl brushcutter?

You know that old saying about buying cheap and buying twice, well I've learned the hard way. My brushcutter is worthy of nothing but the bin. I'd like a petrol Stihl under £300 and they look pretty good, just wondered if anyone had any recommendations. I only do residential properties and don't use on every job but when I do I want one that actually works. TIA.
