What can you do with hedges?

Hedges subdivide farms in a way that also positively impacts nature, climate, air, water and landscape. Grants for hedging under Countryside Stewardship and FiPL can more than cover the cost of creating new hedges.

More than just a boundary!

For National Hedgerow week 2023, we went to look at a hedge at Low Bridge End Farm (St. John's in the Vale) that has expanded into a thriving patch of land producing fruit, Christmas trees, nuts and shelter for livestock. A fantastic example of what can be achieved with 0.07 hectares, a hedge and some imagination.
