One of the most significant benefits of planting a hedge is the value it holds for our local wildlife. From birds to bats to bees and butterflies, best4hedging's range of wildlife-friendly hedging is the perfect way to provide food and shelter to a diverse spectrum of small animals and insects. We have a variety of hedge plants to choose from too including fast-growing shrubs, colourful foliage and evergreen hedging.
Planting a hedge for wildlife is easy. Choose from a variety of the hedging plants featured on this page and once planted, your garden will begin flourishing with various beautiful creatures looking for a haven. Many of our flowering hedges offer nectar and pollen to butterflies and bees while our hedges with berries are a fantastic source for birds and small mammals. However, your wildlife-friendly hedge doesn't need to produce flowers or berries. All hedges act as a pathway to hedgehogs so that they can travel safely from place to place. If you want to protect the local wildlife, investing in wildlife-friendly hedging is perfect for achieving this. Your outdoor space will soon be bustling with wildlife habitat.
A great wildlife-friendly hedging option is our choice of mixed native hedging. Our mixed hedging packs contain the perfect combination of hedge plants for wildlife, so you don't have to worry. Although most native hedging plants are valuable to wildlife, not all wildlife friendly hedging has to be indigenous. Our wildlife hedging includes a range of different species, including fast-growing shrubs, evergreen, deciduous or native varieties, so you'll be sure to find a wildlife-friendly hedge that's right for you.
