Border Hedge / Low Hedge

Aims: The border hedge is used to separate paths and beds. It also allows you to break up your garden and create new areas.

Whatever the situation it must not break the line of view, the plants are there to show off other features, a little like a display box.

It is for this reason that the border hedge is generally made up of a single species.

If for example you would like a vegetable patch, you can divide up the different plots with a low hedge; this not only gives you nicely defined areas but also allows you to have a greater biodiversity.

These hedges are usually made with evergreen plants.

Border Hedge

Adult height: The border hedge should not exceed 1m in height.

Period of interest: All year.

Planting distances: Dependant on the plants chosen (See the technical fact sheets).
