Evergreen Hedging Plants

Evergreen hedges are perfect for those wanting coverage 365 days of the year. Their leaf persistence allows for a dense hedge with a hardy structure to be present year round. The resilience of evergreen bushes to seasonal conditions makes ideal for less than perfect planting conditions.

The ever-present foliage of evergreen trees and shrubs is repeatedly seen within gardens across the UK as they are favoured for the impact they bring to a green space. Their thick foliage not only creates a visually stunning hedge, but consists of characteristics that make for an effective privacy screen. The dense formation of most evergreen hedges reduces the amount of wind and noise that enters your garden as it is filtered through the foliage. These hedges not only keep out wind, noise pollution and the wandering eye of a nosey by passer, a handful of species display spikey branches, and impenetrable branch structures that will certainly discourage any intruders. The most popular of these intruder-proof species are Berberis and Pyracantha.

The significance of evergreen hedges doesn’t stop there. The wide variety of hedge plants in this category boast a number of merits, adding to the year round interest they already provide. For numerous species, the nature of these plants creates a safe and sheltered habitat for garden wildlife. Opting for evergreen hedging will allow you to see an array of critters visiting your garden, before scurrying back to take refuge within the hedges’ thick frame. The wildlife interest continues as birds gather to enjoy the colourful, delicious berries that a number of evergreen hedging plants produce. Fast growing evergreen hedging is one of our most prevalent requests, and as always we’re happy to oblige!

Don’t be misled by the name ‘evergreen’ as it can be deceiving to some, this is because not every species has green foliage. There is no identifiable colour for this category of plants as the leaves range from an array of greens to reds and yellows, making these hedges ideal for those wanting a garden feature that brings colourful interest throughout the year.

Great examples of colourful evergreens are Photinia - one of the evergreen shrubs with red foliage which fades to green, Elaeagnus x ‘Gilt Edge’ which boasts bright yellow margined foliage and Monterey cyprus 'Gold Crest' for its feathery lime- yellow foliage.

Often, the primary desire for an evergreen hedge is to give year round interest, but evergreen hedging for shade is also a popular request. When asked for a hedge for shade which offers year round appeal we often turn to the prevalent laurels, such as Cherry Laurel and Portuguese Laurel. Lonicera nitida, Western Red Cedar, Leylandii, Yew, Box and many more evergreen species are also shade tolerant. Another regular request is for evergreen hedging for clay soils, again Cherry Laurel is a viable option where plenty of well-rotted organic matter is dug in to improve drainage. Thuja or Western Red Cedar is another species which will fare well in a clay soil and Hornbeam should be considered, because although not evergreen it is often considered semi-evergreen due to its crisp brown foliage which stays put year round, giving cover and screening. From small cell grown plants to a range of evergreen hedging trees in monster sizes up to 5 metres, such as Western Red Cedar, Yew, Cherry Laurel and Leylandii - we’ve an evergreen hedge for you
