No problems with the neighbour but I'll need to do the graft.

The hedge is perfect In height if only it would stand up. Stakes and rails (or similar) sound like the best option but I can't see how to do it.

Perhaps metal stakes would be best as they'll take the hammering at the top and will penetrate the ground more easily .

The problem is that it has been growing 'on the lean' for years.

A boundary hedge has grown too high and wide for its own trunks/stems/stalks.

The hedge used to be supported by a wooden frame but that rotted away.

The hedge is currently the perfect height etc as a boundary but can't support it's own weight.

I can only think off giving it a severe trim in both height and width but am worried about killing it.

Option 2 is to support again but I can't see how to get in there to hammer in some stakes and rails.

The hedge isn't mine so having it out and putting up a fence isn't an option.

I'll try to add some pictures / any advice would be gratefully received.
