Hedge Laying. 2 day course £110.00 run throughout the winter weekends.
Hedgelaying is a traditional way of making a hedge stock proof. Once cut, layed, tied or weaved it provides the base for an impenetrable fence. It also sets the foundation for many years of growth that is easy to maintain.
The course is led by Max Simpson a small holders contractor who certainly knows how to do things the proper Cornish way!!
Having had many years experience maintaining small holdings, he is certainly the choice of all the local farmers for all their hedging, fencing and groundwork.
He also collects and uses old machinery and can get most things going or offer advice on how to!
