Choose K. Shepherd & Son, located in Godalming, and you can count on our family-run business to deliver a professional service that’s become the very hallmark of our company. We have undertaken hedge cutting and shaping since the 1950s. Our arborists take pride in their finished work, offering the very best in hedge care for customers in Cranleigh, Farnham, Guildford, Haslemere, Woking and Southern England.
We deal with all aspects of hedge cutting, from formative and ornamental shaping in gardens, to boundary reductions on farmland and in woodland. Our company has an impressive portfolio of previous work and we are available for contract, seasonal or one-off jobs at a domestic and commercial level.
With over 60 years of experience in arboriculture, K. Shepherd & Son invests regularly into state-of-the-art equipment. Modern machinery allows us to complete hedge cutting and trimming work safely and quickly. We have access to the latest 360° grab machines, which are mid-mounted, and which allow our qualified personnel to carry out large-scale hedge cutting work with a clear and uninterrupted front view.
Our team also uses advanced flail hedge cutting machines fitted with grass tyres, ideal for trimming and shaping hedges on golf courses, and on parkland, in the Cranleigh, Farnham, Godalming, Guildford, Haslemere and Woking areas. These tyres significantly reduce damage on soft grass surfaces.
Finally, our tractors, cranes, chippers, winches, mulchers and, of course, hand tools, give us everything we need for efficient hedge maintenance, removals and clearances.
To ensure we complete hedge cutting work safely and to a high standard, our company gives its tree surgeons and operatives training in the use of all equipment. Prior to starting work, we check machine guards and clear working areas of potential hazards. We use safe working practices at all times.
At K. Shepherd & Son, we offer ornamental shaping as part of a comprehensive hedge cutting service. A beautifully shaped hedge draws in the eye and makes a wonderful focal point for gardens or grounds. No matter what size or species of hedge you have, our team has the skills needed to shape it into a design of your choice. If you would like us to be creative in our work, we promise that this will never be a problem.
Our professional team travels to areas throughout Southern England and, thanks to a central location in Godalming, we’re within easy reach of Cranleigh, Farnham, Guildford, Haslemere and Woking. Contact us on 01483 428956 or 07860 698655 to arrange a free consultation and a no-obligation quotation.
A final word on hedge cutting and the impact of our work on native bird species. We work seasonally so as not to disturb adult birds, chicks, nests or their habitat. This means that much of our hedge cutting for the year takes place prior to April, and then starts again as we reach the end of August.
