Evergreen hedge

Aims: The Evergreen Hedge is made of different evergreen, generally fast-growing species with a regular bearing, planted in linear or staggered rows. Planted in linear rows, the hedge becomes a boundary, and can be used to keep you out of the view of others or to hide buildings. Planted in staggered rows for a more natural effect, you can enjoy each plant offering a different foliage and developping freely, without worrying about the falling leaves.

Adult height: The evergreen hedge is usually pruned. It is best kept between 1.50 and 3 metres, with a pruning once or twice a year. If it is not pruned for a more natural effect, the evergreen hedge can reach several metres in height.

Period of interest: All year.

Planting distances: For pruned hedges, every 80 cm. For unpruned hedges, every 1.50 metres.
