This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in woodland care.

In this Badge Bit, you will lay 50 feet of living fence (aka laying a hedge)!



To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- lay 50 feet of living fence (aka laying a hedge)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
   - a before shot of the area where the living fence (hedge) will be laid
   - an action shot of laying the living fence
   - an after shot of the completed living fence that is at least 50 feet long

Is this somehow different from PLANTING that living hedge? As in, once planted and several years have gone by, I will need to make these cuts and weavings in order to qualify for this BB?

I believe this is taking an established and likely overgrown living fence and "laying" it down to thicken and knit together.  So if you plant a living fence today it might be a little while before you can do this BB on that section.
