Well our front hedge is Hawthorn and Blackthorn and it is an absolute b!"£!"£r to cut. We are in the process of reducing the height and width. It is now a week since I did another 4 feet of it (all I can fit in the car to go to the tip) and my hands are still full of festering splinters from them.
Might keep out burglars, but remember they have to be cut!
Will add that if I could afford it I would take it out and replace with fencing, but at over £600 just for the panels, it is a bit beyond our purse.
