About Top 10 Hedge Plants
A "hedge" is a living wall composed of plants. Some are purely decorative, while others serve primarily a practical function. Hedge plants used decoratively are often trimmed to precise sizes and shapes.
A hedge or hedgerow is a line of closely spaced shrubs and sometimes trees, planted and trained to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area, such as between neighbouring properties. Hedges used to separate a road from adjoining fields or one field from another, and of sufficient age to incorporate larger trees, are known as hedgerows.
There is a great variety of hedging plants to choose from. So a hedge should never be considered as a boring, utility aspect of the garden.
A hedge may consist of a single species or several, typically mixed at random.
