Action 88: you can also re-purpose prunings to create a dead hedge. A dead hedge is of benefit to small birds and animals as a place of shelter and safety. Use some strong sticks pushed into the soil vertically to hold the hedge in place: place them in two rows as wide as your hedge will be. Fill the space in between with branches, prunings etc (bend and fold long flimsy cuttings) laying them horizontally. Bend some of these to hold others in place. You can include sticks with leaves on. Over time the mass of dead plants will rot down, but in the interim they will provide a habitat for small creatures, beetles, insects etc.
