What to grow for evergreen hedges
Evergreen trimmed hedges add colour to the garden all the year round and provide permanent protection from inquisitive eyes as well as the wind. With their clear lines, they offer an interesting contrast to the colourful flowerbeds or a bed of ornamental grasses. It goes without saying that they can also be combined with topiary hedges. As a rule, trimmed hedges only comprise a single species of tree. They must be trimmed four times per year in order to maintain their shape and dense growth. Typical evergreen hedge plants are listed below.
