Pruning a Privet hedge
Perhaps someone could give me some advice? The privet hedge that runs along the party wall (line) at the front of my house, is planted on my neighbours side. It is well kept and looks lovely on their side of the fence. It is however very patchy and in poor condition on my side, due to years of little or no attention. I would like to trim/prune it back, but have been told that it is 'dead' on my side. Is this possible? Dead on one side , not on the other. Or am I able to trim it back aggressively 10/12 inches, in the hope that it will begin to recover?
