Relationship with neighbours

The thickness should be kept to a minimum while allowing opacity to reduce the energy required at the time of maintenance. A hedge that is too thick can double the effort required to perform a quality pruning.

The height of the hedge
The higher the cedar demand, the higher the price. Its height is the result of several years spent in the field. So logically the longer the period, the greater the return on investment for the producer.
The type of soil

The types of soil observed vary from sandy to clayey, passing by the most expensive, the rocky ones. Regardless of each variant, there is a good way to work the soil and guarantee impeccable results.

To protect the swimming pool, shed, house, fence tarpaulin is used. For the lawn plywood panels are used to circulate when necessary.

Rarity of the cedar ask

Hopefully, this information will help you to understand the variables influencing the price of a hedge installation.
A conventional pruning generates fine scraps which are discarded free of charge by local organizations. When folding down the hedge and for example lowering the hedge by a third, simply visualize the mass of greenery and branches that should be removed. This increases the workload.
It is especially important to understand the limits of such work. We are limited to reducing the hedge from a maximum of one third to half the total height of the hedge. Lowering beyond these limits can permanently damage the hedge.
Due to the unorthodox nature of the work, it is important to take the lead and communicate intensively in order to ensure the smooth running of the work. The line is thin between your satisfaction or total regret. It is important to plan down to the smallest detail and double check rather than once.
Due to the nature of such works, the aesthetics of the hedge will suffer for a few years. The lack of greenery in the high part of hedge is normal as well as a broken horizon line and a dishevelled pace.
In short, in situations where folding down remains the best option. There are ways to practise it safely and plans to find a beautiful hedge. But patience will be necessary.
Cultivated cedar, growing in working, fattening, loose soil and free from large debris, the root system can expand freely and uniformly, unlike wild cedar, which must establish itself in nature in a much less favourable environment and hostile. At the time of the transplant, the quality of the roots will be a significant element in ensuring the success of the project.
The cedar in breeding installed in the middle of a field will benefit from a full growth in a united and complete way due to the absence of nuisances. Wild cedars in nature, on the other hand, will have to contend with obstacles such as mature trees, a bush acting as a screen that deprives them of light, as well as invasive tall grass, all detrimental to quality, dense and vigorous foliage.
To finish the cedar of breeding him in an environment free from any competition will be able to profit from a complete and exact nutrition for superior results and a regular apartment in supplements favouring the constancy in the growth, as well as an adjustment of the precipitations if these are rare. The result will be impeccable quality cedar.
For its part, the wild cedars must remain the nutrients found in the forest, these being released on a less regular basis and at the whim of Mother Nature, leaving the trees much less advantaged. As for the water in nature, this is not controllable, leaving wild cedars often dry and in competition with more mature trees with more massive root systems.
In short hoping that these few lines will help you make your decision.
First, one of the first factors influencing the price is the frequency of maintenance. A regularly maintained hedge will have a range of denser branches which will give a perfect result at the time of the pruning. And the work will be simpler and the result much more aesthetic. With a hedge that has not been pruned for more than five years, the costs could be higher the workload being additional it is still possible to carry out the work and obtain remarkable results, however, the density it will not be there it will take a few years to allow the hedge to recover.
Second factors, the height of the cedar hedge. This will be significant as the taller the trees the more there is to prune. Special and adapted working techniques must be taken for that type of work, stepladder, basket, scaffolding. Physical effort will also be taken into consideration.
The width of the cedar hedge will be considered since once again the wider the hedge the larger the horizontal surface will be. In some cases, we must plan work on both sides of the hedge and warn the neighbours of our passage in addition to using extensions on the pruning tool.
Obstacles such as swimming pools, sheds, gardens, overhead cables which are electrical or telecommunications lines, these may require special attention as well as laborious techniques. With the right tools and experience there is always a way to do a good job. Finally, the terrain relief surrounding the hedge type of uneven, inclined soil could also have an important role on the price of the maintenance of your cedar hedge.
The wild cedar often comes from swampy forest or lowland.
These puny plants, weak and devoid of real mass of greenery, are sold in large quantity and stored for long periods of time, before being transported, waiting to find a taker. Often these can remain for weeks with the roots exposed to the air. Wild cedars being advantageous for small budgets, beware it is not uncommon to have to change the entire hedge following the purchase of a set of defective cedars stored for too long and neglect.
Semi-cultivated cedars a pale version of cultivated cedars. The semi cultivated being of lower quality of its less dense foliage than the cultivated it is often characterized by its lack of maintenance (supplement, watering, attention of a professional, weeding) during its growth in the field simply said it is of a tree leave to poor growing conditions in an environment that is controllable.
Grown in the field
The grown in field cedar is a tree with full foliage and provided with a noble appearance the attention to detail testifies to the result a tree maintained, nourishes, inspects, a job well done in the field gives dice magical result.
Grown in pots
Cedar grown in pots essentially yields flawless results equally with a difference. Constrained for several years the roots swirl in the shape of the pot, in other words, this tree which was once confined to its pot will never have a root system as complete and deployed as a bare-root cedar, which will take back its root system from random as nature does so well.
Even after several years the cedar will not have the same solidity in the bad weather, strong winds, etc.
