Hi There...
not really a problem here.as the hedge is only 2m high.it's roots are not that developed. and even if there is a little stress.it will bounce back quickly. I would say approx no nearer than 300mm from the nearest face of the hedge..before you dig,give the hedge a good prune that will compansate for any damage to the root system that you may cause.also if you have an option do the work after leaf fall..if not water the hedge well as the work proceeds..
don't lose sleep on this one
happy digging.
Mark Gregory.
