In this short video, Teagasc countryside management specialist Catherine Keena outlines some of her top tips on planting a hedge from what to plant to how to cut the hedge back once it's planted and how to prevent weeds taking over.

Catherine joined the Footprint Farmers in Tullamore Farm at the end of October.
