Guide to Fast Growing Hedging image

Our guide to fast growing hedging

Fast growing hedge plants are the perfect, time and cost effective way to establish a fully formed garden feature. We understand that some customers are restricted to a certain budget and one of the main benefits of planting a quick growing hedge is that you dont have to initially buy the tallest plants for your garden. Our fast growing hedges have an average growth rate of 40-60cm per annum and will achieve their desired height in next to no time. Due to their swift development, there is the common concern about fast growing hedge maintenance. However, these speedy species only need pruning once or twice per year, so choosing a quick growing shrub will save you time, money and effort. Speed and height are the primary gardening goals associated with this section. The majority of fastgrowing plants are suited to heights up to 5m and are frequently used as an effective, privacy screen with wind breaking and noise reducing capabilities. Some of the most popular shrubs for privacy include our collection of conifer and evergreen hedge plants, both of which are wonderful options for providing instant screening and year round cover. For the ultimate screen, consider our professionally maintained, instant hedging. Keep those nosey neighbours at bay by including these eady-made features in your plot and waste no time at all waiting for them to establish. We have an array of instant species available in heights as small as 30cm, up to 2m tall, so if its a low border or a large arrier youre looking for, our instant hedging will satisfy heaps of gardening needs.
