Deirdre Lord, fellow homeowner and energy expert, treated us to a how-to video on how to trim your privet hedge. Below, she answers more questions about how to trim a privet hedge regarding equipment, the time it takes, and handy tips to make the job go smoothly and safely.

2. How long does it take to trim a privet hedge?
