hedges can be used as a wonderful, natural looking divider.
They can be planted to separate different areas of the garden
from each other. They can make beautiful markers of property
lines or sidewalks. Garden hedges can be used to control human
and animal traffic in certain areas of a landscape.
hedges also protect other plants from nature. Animals that
would normally enter a garden to eat the foliage may be dissuaded
by the presence of garden hedges. They can make a dense wall
to keep deer or rabbits out of a garden. Garden hedges also
protect other more delicate plants from cold weather. Planting
a row of evergreen garden hedges in a border around a perennial
garden will make an excellent year round windbreak.
hedges can also be uses as privacy shields. Garden hedges
that grow to eight feet tall will make an attractive alternative
to a manmade object, such as a fence. Living privacy fences
have many advantages to their manmade counterparts. First
of all, garden hedges are cheaper to purchase than a wooden
or vinyl fence. Secondly, garden hedges are more beautiful
in terms of texture and color. In addition, they can be pruned
into a nice, formal shape for a more striking look.
