You just keep checking it by standing back every so often ppauper, and keeping a steady hand. Good exercise, going up and down the ladders
I did all my own hedges, and did my Dad's for a number of years - beech and conifer - and his were monstrous. Ladders plus an attachment on the hedge clippers, and even then it was a struggle to get across them. I didn't use a string as I'm not bad at getting things straight by eye.
The top should be narrower than the base - not a right angle D'House. It lets the whole hedge get more light and prevents the bottom getting sparse.
