Pruning in a European style

While I was away in the south of France, Shaun, my gardener, decided that a very tall Carpinus (upright European hornbeam) hedge needed a good pruning. Shaun is a very skilled pruner and he wanted to give this hedge a classic European look. He enlisted Wilmer and Chhiring's help and got busy snipping away. I am very pleased with the results and not only is the hedge beautiful to look at, it also does a great job of blocking out the busy road.
