Watch the Sydney Living Museums' gardens team cutting the Broad-Leaf Privet (Ligustrum lucidum) hedge lining the drive from the house to the stables at Throsby Park.

This time-lapse video by Steven Halliday was filmed over two and half hours with six staff and created four ute-loads of material.

The hedge was reduced in height as part of the on-going rejuvenation of the garden at Throsby Park and will now be maintained at a low height just above the top fence rail.
