Hedge Cutting

Hedges are often used as natural boundaries and privacy screens or simply to improve the aesthetics of your estate. OUTCO not only ensure your hedges are well-maintained and looking great, but also prevent spreading and overgrowth into walkways, ensuring safe, unobstructed passage for pedestrians.

Hedges and beds have an important aesthetic and structural role in any outdoor facility setting. They create form and structure, define boundaries, create spaces and protect privacy as well as provide interest, strong visual impact and colour in your landscape design. In addition, they provide increasingly important habitat in an urban setting for wildlife, particularly birds and insects. Many hedge plants are long-lived if they are planted and maintained correctly. Maintenance needs can be intensive and sometimes expensive particularly if the wrong species has been planted in an inappropriate location.

Pruning and cutting back will take place during winter months depending on variety and species. We can also extend our hedge services to include small trees and shrubs to keep your sites tidy. Poorly timed pruning and maintenance operations result in cube-like structures that have no resemblance to their natural form, lose their seasonal diversity and have a lower ecological value

Mulching

Mulching is a valuable activity that helps preserves plants while also reducing ongoing grounds maintenance costs throughout the year. Beds and borders can quickly dry out or be taken over by weeds. We recommend use of a bark mulch across the soil surface which will bring several benefits to your facility grounds. We will supply you with best quality bark mulches, organic matter and composts as well applying the bark mulch around your grounds.

Benefits includes tidying borders and flower beds after leaves fall, reducing grounds maintenance by suppressing weed growth, helping conserve soil moisture during dry weather, reducing soil erosion during heavy rain, insulating plant root area in both hot and cold weather. It also protects the area around the plants from drying out too quickly by trapping moisture during rainfall and ensuring beds don’t dry out quickly in the heat of summer. Finally fine material in mulch has soil conditioner properties and will feed the topsoil as well as attract worms to the soil.

Hedges and beds have an important aesthetic and structural role in any outdoor facility setting – they create form and structure, define boundaries, create spaces and protect privacy as well as provide interest, strong visual impact and colour in your landscape design

Planted beds can be an effective way to enhance a site – whether a working environment or residential community – through simple cost-effective measures.

In a community, planting flower beds in shared spaces makes the environment more attractive and fosters a sense of pride and care among users.
