Aims: The country hedge is a decorative hedge that fits perfectly into the landscape, looking as if it had always been there. Where possible it uses species that are already found in the landscape and which establish themselves easily. The country hedge will supply food to the wild animals and birds and contribute to the conservation of the biodiversity. The country hedge also acts like a windbreak and provides protection from the cold in winter.

Adult height: Between 3m and 5m.

Period of interest: All year.

Planting distances: Every metre.

Mulch: To avoid weeding, think to install Weed Control Fabric before planting.
Available widths: 1m05 / 1m25 / 1m50 / 2m10 / 3m25
