Planting a hedge along a boundary instead of a fence will offer many benefits to your garden. A hedge will not only provide privacy, but it will also bring additional colour and texture to your outside space. It also offers a safe home to many different types of wildlife.
Alongside providing security, hedges also help to suppress noise. This can be a huge benefit if you live close to a road. Although the finical investment may be greater than that of a fence, a hedge will outlive multiple fence replacements, making it a sounds investment.
Because of all of this, large hedges have been known to increase property value on many houses.
