Evergreen Hedges

Evergreen Hedges


Evergreen hedges are perfect for those wanting year-round leaf cover and a consistent, attractive, full hedge look. They are the ideal choice for gardens where privacy is required as the fullness of the foliage creates a natural green screen perfect for keeping gardens secluded from general view. Evergreen plants, dependent upon the species, also have excellent sound-absorbing capabilities and popular in built-up, urban areas. They can also act as a natural windbreak for homes and gardens in general but are particularly suitable for those with a more exposed aspect.

Evergreen hedging 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 leaf cover in autumn/winter. As a result, the air in the vicinity is consistently cleaner.

Environmentally, evergreen hedges have a myriad of positives. They help stabilise the ground and prevent soil erosion. They're an ideal flood prevention measure, soaking up excess groundwater before it can reach hard surfaces or homes.
