Native Hedge Plants

Native Hedge Plants


Native hedge plants are hedges that have developed in an area naturally over thousands of years and continues to thrive; in this case, the UK. This has been achieved and sustained without any human intervention. There is a vast amount of popular native hedges available in the UK including Box, Beech, Yew and Hornbeam. Planting one of these species ensures that your hedging is acclimatised to the UK, which means that less favourable soils will be tolerated.

Native hedges also protect local wildlife including hedgehogs, birds and bees.

Native hedging doesnt just provide a natural, outdoor feature. These species also offer additional benefits such as privacy, keeping intruders away, provide shade and ideal for UK coastal areas.
