T3 Group of Prunus laurocerasus (Cherry Laurel) This group of laurel are quite mature and have extended growth towards the road and into your garden. They have become very large and are in need of some control. I recommend a hard cut on the house side, back to the line where the brown grass and Ivy meet. This is severe but it is the only way to improve the grass and thicken the growth. I am confident that new growth will be produced but there may be a few stems that decide to give up. Due to the high number of stems this should not be a problem. The old lawn beneath should be sown with shade tolerant seed. The climbers growing off the trellis panels will also have to be cut back as they are combined. We aim to leave the Cotoneaster only. The owner has been asked to reduce the growth on the road side. I agree that this is extensive in places and a gap needs to be establish between the hedge and the pollarded Lime tree. To prune to various lengths to leave a looser face. Lower branches should be lifted to expose the Beech hedge more. T4 Fagus sylvatica (Beech) Crown lift over road, removing damaged branch ends and cutting back to a suitable branch union beyond the road edge to maintain as much screening as possible. T5 Acer pseudoplatanus (Sycamore) Remove lower limb back to main stem and lift crown to clear road.
