of the harsh hedge trim going on around the industrial areas near my work parking
Yes it was a bit rambly but I have walked past so many times and the constant chatter from sparrows in there was a delight.
Cutting these bushes down to half height exposes the bland buildings behind – surely for everyone passing living near or working there having your vision with a greater feel of green is better than those buildings hoving into view?
DonT these hedges also provide a bit of a screen from the noise of the road for the workplaces ? And dont they absorb some of the traffic smells ?
Cutting these hedges so low show expose the hard railings .. A severe view.. How much more pleasant the surroundings become with that green barrier intact…..
Surely this undervaluing of these green edges needs to be reviewed ? The little green corridors which have so much potential. Or is this just me?
