Once established, many types of hedges will require no care whatsoever, unless the gardener chooses to trim them to shape.
The choice of shrub or tree greatly affects what care needs to be taken for the hedges to survive.
Hedges can grow in nearly any growing condition possible. The sheer variety of shrubs and trees that make excellent hedges is amazing.
One way to make a different looking hedge, is to use different species and types of plants together. The variety used can make a very bold statement.
Hedges serve many purposes in the garden and landscape. Hedges can make a great wind block.
Hedges are good privacy screens, and can be a wonderful looking alternative to a fence or other such divider. Whatever the use, a gardener will thrill in the ease of growing hedges.
