About HedgeLife

We are passionate about improving the UK’s hedgerow network. Working for farmers, landowners and domestic clients we plant, lay and coppice hedges. We can also help with grant schemes and advice to help get the best out of your hedges.

Hedge planting

Planting a new hedge or gapping up an existing one can offer a range of benefits from carbon sequestration and habitat improvement to increased privacy and security for your home of land. Our planting system is optimised to give protection against drought and help ensure plant establishment. Full grant funding available through CSS Capital Grants.


Our skilled team can carry out this centuries old technique to rejuvenate and thicken an established hedge. Full grant funding available through CSS Capital Grants.


Coppicing can be a great way to rejuvenate an overstood hedge. We ensure a high standard of work including angled cuts on stools to help good regrowth. Coppicing can be used in combination with gapping up very effectively. Full grant funding available through CSS Capital Grants.

Farmers and landowners: there has never been a better time to plant or restore a hedge on your farm.

The Capital Grant Scheme 2023 is now open for applications.

Capacity is limited and we expect the Capital Grant Scheme to be oversubscribed. The RPA have said that applications will be dealt with on a first come first served basis. Payment rates have increased significantly and often a grant will more than cover the cost of the work.
