Evergreen Hedges

Evergreen Hedges


Evergreen hedges are a popular choice to have in the garden or as part of your outdoor space. They provide year-round leaf cover and a consistent, attractive, full hedge look. Evergreen shrubs are favourable with gardeners where privacy is required, as the fullness of the foliage creates a natural green screen perfect for keeping gardens secluded from general view. Aside from the all-year-round green coverage and privacy that evergreen plants provide, they also have excellent sound-absorbing capabilities and popular in built-up, urban areas. However, this is dependent upon the species.

The benefits that evergreen hedging provides continues. This type of hedging species can act as a highly effective pollutant absorbent, helping to filter toxic particles from the air, generated by traffic emissions. With permanent leaf cover, this process continues year-round, as opposed to deciduous hedges which lose leave cover in autumn/ winter. As a result, the air in the vicinity is consistently cleaner.

Environmentally, evergreen hedges have a myriad of positives, making them a popular choice of plans for hedging. They help to stabilise the ground, preventing soil erosion. Also, evergreen shrubs act as a prevention measure, soaking up excess groundwater before it can reach hard surfaces or homes.
