Thanks for the advice plotter6, I will give that a go as I do have some parts of the hedge that are a bit sparse.

Thanks nutcutlet, I didn't want to leave it too late because of the birds as well. If it's not raining tomorrow.....guess what I'll be doing.

Thanks to you all for the good advice, realy appreciated. I think i'll get the hedge trimmer on it this week, I was just a little 'scared' to have a hack at it and then find that I have to buy more hedging to replace it.

Lyn, yes the hedge is mine, I put the stock fence up to keep my little terrier in and it was easier to put it this side of the hedge than the other.

Hi guys, I'm a newbie here so first and foremost hello to you all. I have just bought a new home in Dumfries and Galloway and have inherited a lovely leggy privet hedge. The garden had been left for years and was totally overgrown. I have been doing some research about regenerating privet and beech hedges (yes, I have a rather looking sad beech hedge too) and before I set to the hedge and prune back hard I want to make sure that I'll be doing the right thing. I've read that privet are very hardy and that it is possible to take it right back to a few feet from ground level and it will grow back thicker and fill out to a more lush hedge giving me a kinda 'privacy' hedge (which is what I'm after). I'm sure one of you experts can point me in the right direction. As you can see fromt he photo it's prety tall..

 Hope one of you guys can give me some advice.
