Nurturing Gardens, Respecting Wildlife – A Guide to Hedge Trimming and Cutting
Maintaining a beautifully landscaped garden requires a delicate balance between enhancing its aesthetic appeal and preserving the natural habitat of local wildlife. At Thomas Fox Landscaping, we pride ourselves on being environmentally conscious, especially when it comes to hedge trimming and cutting. In this blog, we’ll explore the importance of respecting nature, particularly during the main breeding season for nesting birds.
The Breeding Season and Wildlife Conservation
At Thomas Fox Landscaping, we prioritise wildlife conservation by adhering to ethical practices. One crucial aspect is that we are not obliged to carry out hedge cutting during the main breeding season for nesting birds, typically spanning from 1st March to 1st August each year. However, we recognise that this timeframe may vary depending on weather conditions, and some birds might nest outside of the specified period. Therefore, it is imperative that our team diligently checks for active nests before initiating any hedge cutting activities.
The significance of this policy lies in the preservation of avian habitats. Cutting hedges during the breeding season could disrupt nesting birds, potentially harming their offspring and hindering the local ecosystem’s balance. By being vigilant and proactive, Thomas Fox Landscaping ensures that our services not only enhance the beauty of your garden but also contribute to the well-being of the surrounding wildlife.
