Itchenor & Birdham Tree Surgery Services
Vegetation and trees which are within a garden may be out of control especially if they are not maintained properly by a professional tree services provider.
The lack of maintenance to gardens and outdoor areas may lead to problems such as cracked sewer lines, wall decay and roof / gutter failure.
As garden services providers, we help to maintain hundreds of Chichester properties by hiring fully qualified Arborists and professional Landscapers.
There are several benefits of choosing Cloud Landscapes tree maintenance team. One reason is that customers are ensured of safety whenever it comes to the possible threats posed by unmaintained trees and vegetation.
Also, our Garden Services in Chichester ensures you have a well maintained outdoor space which boosts the appearance of your environment and makes the home appealing to visitors.
Apart from the removal of overgrown shrubs, our landscape gardeners also help customers with the clearing of unwanted trees within the grounds which can obscure views as well as aesthetics of the property.
Experience professional, Checkatrade approved landscape services providers by contacting Cloud landscapes for all your tree services, tree surgery, hedge cutting and garden services needs in Chichester and the surrounding areas.
This garden design project was an absolute pleasure to complete.
Set in the heart of chichester, with it's incredible views of chichester CATHEDRAL, we were spoilt for choice regarding the POSSIBILITIES of such a sought after location.
Working closely with the owners, we decided to strip the old garden back to a blank canvas and start again. The areas had been left far too long unattended and the garden had become overgrown and unmanageable.
For practicalities, we went with a sweeping pathway which wrapped the bedding areas. A large patio area at both ends of the garden complimented the views and sun traps.
Old style brick edging, bespoke solid oak pergolas and long trellis boundary beams all featured heavily in the design.
Once the planting was finally installed the garden came back to life. This is most certainly one of our showcase garden builds!

After 10 weeks of incredible work from James and the team we have finally reached the finish line!
We are absolutely delighted with the results and look forward to maintaining the garden in the future.
Our tree surgeons and tree services were a large part of the project removing approximately 30 tons of dead, dying and diseased trees and hedges, brambles and bamboo.
Once the tree and shrub removal was completed James and the groundworks team made light work of the levelling, excavation and irrigation, not to mention the new pond and York Stone installation.
A truly enjoyable project end to end. Once the grass seed starts to establish we will get the first cut out the way, then more photos to highlight the transformation!
We originally visited this stunning property in 2017. Here are some images of the initial site clearance prior to garden design.
More before and after photos of the clearance...
We then had to wait a few months whilst the tree and conservation applications were approved to further remove larger tree specimens which had been highlighted as dead or dying. A few tree reductions also took place. Watch this space!

It is only possible to keep your Chichester hedges looking beautifully manicured with regular garden maintenance?
Our experienced arborists will be able to identify the plant species for you to ensure the correct timing and extent of the hedge work required.
By reducing the number of annual cuts you can keep a hedge in check but still enjoy the flower, fruit and autumn colour that the species provide.
As a rough guide here are some common hedging plants with their tolerance to heavy pruning. If heavy pruning is not an option then more regular trimming will be necessary. Trimming will be very species dependant but here is a rough guide:
- Beech (Fagus sylvatica): Tolerates relatively hard pruning.
- Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) Tolerates very hard pruning).
- Box (Buxus sempervirens): Tolerates relatively hard pruning.
- Elaeagnus: Tolerates very hard pruning.
- Euonymus: Tolerates very hard pruning.
- Griselinia: Tolerates hard pruning.
- Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna): Tolerates very hard pruning.
- Holly (Ilex aquifolium): Tolerates hard pruning.
- Holm Oak (Quercus ilex): Tolerates hard pruning.
- Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus): Tolerates hard pruning.
- Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus): Tolerates very hard pruning.
- Lawson Cypress (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana): As a hedging plant it does not tolerate
- hard pruning.
- Monterey Cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa): As a hedging plant it does not tolerate
- hard pruning.
- Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica): Tolerates hard pruning.
- Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium): Tolerates hard pruning.
- Pyracantha: Tolerates very hard pruning.
- Western Red Cedar (Thuja species): Tolerates relatively hard pruning (on of the few
- coniferous tree species that does).

Hedge maintenance tips
- Prune those plants that flower on the current season’s growth, like as Fuchsia, once in spring, as they will still be able to produce flowers that year.
- For plants that flower on one-year-old growth like Pittosporum, reduce the current season’s growth by half in summer.
- In the case of shrubs that produce berries, such as Cotoneaster and Pyracantha, delay trimming until the berries disappear.
