Living walls of green.

Hedges are rows of shrubs or small trees that offer a lush and diverse backdrop to your garden, with an array of foliage colours, flowers, and textures that fencing alone cannot match. Hedges provide numerous benefits including creating visually pleasing structure to your garden, a privacy screen or hiding unsightly views. Furthermore, hedges provide a haven for insects while blocking wind, noise, and dust.

Hedges require pruning 1-2 times a year, the end of winter is a good time to prune and then again at the end of summer or after flowering if needed.

See below the types of hedges that may suit your garden
