  • This has got significantly worse as the hedge in the 1st photo hangs so you have to duck to avoid being hit by the foliage. I am not tall so its a problem for most. Also the path is very narrow now due to the huge hedge growing out across the path, its a constant problem every year. Not maintained regularly enough, and its laurel which grows fast and is enormous! PLEASE can it be cut back properly?
