 I had never heard of hedge laying til you brought it up.  I watched a couple of videos now I see why they can be so difficult to drive a tank thru. Interesting way to define fields , roads and bounds.  Personally I like the stone walls we have here in New England.  I would not do hedge laying myself because it looks to "messy" for me. :) I don't like it when stones fall off the stone walls  ;D but that's just me.  It will be enjoyable to see its progress.
Think like a farmer.

I've got the basic idea of hedge laying down, and have considered offering the service, but there doesn't seem to be the demand for t around here.

i remember the old man taught me too lay hedges, he always used to say 'remember boy you can lay any size tree' me: 'what about a 100ft pine tree?' , 'if your stupid enough to try!'. the next year i tried and failed miserably! ::)

That is funny, had it worked I suspect it would not take many to make one heck of a fence.
