Defensive Hedge

Aims: The main purpose of the defensive hedge is to prevent any intrusion onto your property. It consists of thorny shrubs and trees; it may also protect you from prying eyes. The defensive hedge can also give you a permanent display of different colors and shapes depending on the plants you chose.

Adult height:The defensive hedge is normally not pruned. Its height will depend on the plants used.

Period of interest: All year.

Planting distances: Every 80cm. The effectiveness of any defensive hedge is dependant on its density, it is therefore important to plant close together.
