Hedge Leveling Tip

4433 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Airshow
I've started trimming my Lilac hedge at night with my laser level that I use for carpentry.

Instead of trimming and standing back for a look, only to trim the whole thing lower to match low spots (and then repeat that again), I can now trim the hedge perfectly level in under 10 minutes.

I also use the laser plumb line to make the sides perfectly vertical. I prefer the boxed look.

If you have a laser level and neighbours who already understand that you're obsessed, try it out. :lol:

I've used string with a line level as a guide before for long hedges, but this is an even better idea.
Just not having to tie off a string is going to save 15 minutes (each time, too, for when it gets cut). The vertical is a huge help too. If I were to do it, I'd use the laser.

Glad I went to a rounder look for most shrubs, and no longer have hedges, though.
