Hedges and Screens

Long-lasting, hedges are living fences that are easy to plant and relatively cheap. They form beautiful boundaries, provide privacy, add structure to the garden and beautify the landscape. Evergreen or deciduous, there is a wide range of plants to consider. The best time to plant a hedge is in spring for evergreens and fall for deciduous plants.
