Transplanting established hedges using machinery
I have a very mature Laurel hedge and 2 sections of privet hedge. We are planning major building works and these hedges sadly need to go. I really want to move them to another position on the boundary.
So I was wondering if I can get the groundworks guys to do this with their digger? ie dig a long trench in the desired position, then just dig up the hedges and plonk them in?? Sounds easy, but I'm sure it's not so simple, and I'm not sure how deep we would need to dig.
