plant hedges
With our modern life styles, our green spaces, gardens and nature around us are being swallowed by the concrete jungle. Gardens are getting smaller and with that – our privacy.  Growing a hedge or screening plant is one of the best ways to ensure that your privacy remains intact whilst bringing a bit of nature into your (and even your lucky neighbour’s) life.  Hedges have been used for centuries with the Ancient Romans having multiple uses for them.  Hedges, tall and low growing, remain an integral part of formal landscaping due to their many uses.
