Evergreen hedging brings year-round interest to your garden, as well as making fantastic privacy screens and windbreaks. best4hedging has a huge range of evergreen hedges for you to choose from.
Evergreen plants boast green leaves for all four seasons – the Latin ‘sempervirens’ translates to ‘always green’, and can be found in many Latin plant names. Although evergreen hedges do lose leaves, it is in a far more subtle way to deciduous plants, as new leaves grow as the old ones shed.
There are also semi-evergreen hedges, which are typically evergreen but can lose some to all leaves in extreme weather conditions.
We also offer evergreen hedges that produce berries, as well as beautiful flowers in a range of colours and shapes.
A distinct benefit of evergreen hedging is that it makes a wonderful year-round shelter for wildlife. Birds can safely nest within evergreen shrubs, whilst hedgehogs can use them almost like a corridor to travel between gardens. The berries and flowers on evergreen hedging also attract and feed birds, small mammals and pollinating insects such as bumblebees, making these hedges a must-have for the gardens of animal lovers.
An additional benefit of evergreen hedging is that it makes a cost-effective, longer-lasting alternative to a garden fence – not to mention more visually appealing. Evergreen hedges are also far more resilient to inclement weather and are beneficial for the environment, helping with noise, wind and traffic pollution.
