Don't know about the rest of you but I have had a killer time with hedge work this year. Rain really made them sprout. I hired a guy for two days and paid $20/hour just to get them done. Before you freak out about the pay this guy is very good and extremely fast. We knocked out close to $800 worth of hedge work in 8 hours on Saturday. Anyone else having a hard time getting hedges done this year with the rain and growth? Any tips on making it go faster or easier. I think I have the right equipment Stihl handheld, stihl pole.
