Simon Berryman


Based in St Hilary, Penzance, Simon Berryman has been hedging since the early nineteen eighties, at first on a contractual basis for roadside hedges and then moving into private garden and landscaping work. Though having worked in most areas of stonework over the years, hedging has remained the core trade. Working wherever possible with stone local to the site and working with an eye to existing hedges in the locality, the aim has always been to build hedges that look right and that are sympathetic to their surroundings.

Simon has continually sought out best practice and he and his small, carefully trained team use the most effective and attractive methods of traditional hedge construction.

As well as hedges other stonework is also undertaken: stone paving with setts, slabs or cobbles, steps, terracing and walls – also specialising in soft mortared stone walls. 

"Many of these ancient hedges are still in use in Cornwall today, among the  world's oldest artifacts still performing their original function."
