Cost of trimming a hedge?

How much would I be looking at for regularly trimming our hedge? Ours is a privet hedge about 10m long in the back garden and 5m in the front.

Two quite significant contributing factors would be whether it is a meter high or 2.5m high. And I will assume that the shape is already in a good condition. Based on a hedge that is less than 1.5m in height and is already in relatively good shape. For two cuts a year I would charge approximately £225. If the hedge is over 2m in height and in relatively good shape I would charge approximately £275. If the hedge however is not in a decent condition or shape than it would definitely require looking at the job before being able to give you a ball park figure

How tall is the hedge itself?
Is it hard to get to all sides requiring a cut ?
How regular is regular ? Once a month ?
What area is the house situated so we can calculate travel costs ?

Based on a maximum of 6 foot height
By 10m long
And the front of maximum 6 foot height and 5mtres long .

I believe it would sit roughly between depending on the variations above . Between £100 £150 with all green waste taken away included in this price.

It really depends on how much you want to take off the hedge? And how much waste there is on completion? Can you please send me a picture of the hedge?

£60/80 per visit through growing season with waste take depending on location due to fuel costs (first visit may be more if it’s overgrown due to waste quantity and labour difference)

The cost of regularly trimming a privet hedge can vary depending on factors such as location, local rates, and the specific services offered by gardeners or landscaping professionals. On average, hedge trimming services might range from £30 to £50 per hour. Given the size of your hedges, it could take a few hours to complete the job. It's advisable to obtain quotes from local professionals to get a more accurate estimate based on your specific location and the level of service you require.

This would be around £90. We work on an hourly rate so if it takes less time, the price will be lower.
There will also be 2 working on the job so the job will be completed faster and to a high standard.

For regular trimming which includes reducing sides and height and removal of waste you would be looking between £120-£200 depending on thickness of the hedge

For a one off cut I myself would charge around £100 for the completion of the cut and the removal of cuttings. For a regular trim depending on the time it takes I would range from around £25 to £50.

When considering hedge trimming costs, it’s important to remember several factors may drive up the cost of the job. Size is the primary driver of increased costs, as more labour will be required to complete the trimming. Location and accessibility, however, are a close second. If your hedge is hard to reach, or very tall – a tradesperson may be required to use specialist equipment. In this case, you may find your quote for hedge trimming service cost is on the higher end of the price range.

Around £60 per hour.

Cost of trimming hedges depends on length and height of hedge.
Can provide quotations on privet hedge sizing/variations in person, or by phone to suit customer needs.
For one-off jobs/regular maintenance, the pricing is charged on a day rate basis.
