Maintenance of a Laurel Hedge

Laurel hedging requires little maintenance. One of the most important factors to a healthy hedge is weed control. Weeds at the bottom of your hedge can stop your laurel hedge from growing down to the ground.  Laurel hedging can be trimmed in late spring or early summer as the hedge will produce new shoots this time of year.
