English Yew Hedges
What is an English Yew Hedge?

English yew hedges, also known as Taxus Baccata, are a dense, evergreen hedge made from long-living yew trees. These hedges offer privacy, wind protection, and timeless elegance for UK gardens. While low-maintenance and adaptable, be aware of their slow growth, size potential, and poisonous nature. Most of the plant is poisonous with exception to the red surrounds of the berries, known as arils, which are a food course for birds and other wildlife.

Why Choose English Yew Instant Hedging?

There are many benefits of choosing an English Yew instant hedge:

    1. Instant Privacy and Screening: Unlike traditional hedges that take years to reach maturity, yew instant hedges provide immediate seclusion and visual barriers. Imagine enjoying your garden without unwanted eyes, sheltered from the wind and noise pollution.
    2. Dense, Evergreen Beauty: English yews boast deep green, needle-like foliage that remains vibrant throughout the year. Their dense growth creates an impenetrable wall, adding a touch of sophistication and evergreen charm to your landscape.
    3. Low Maintenance & Slow Growth: Yew instant hedges are the epitome of low-maintenance wonders. They require minimal pruning compared to other fast-growing hedges, saving you precious time and effort. Their slow growth rate also means less frequent trimming, allowing you to relish their evergreen elegance for years to come.
    4. Versatility and Adaptability: These versatile beauties thrive in various soil conditions. They perform well in both sun and partial shade, making them adaptable to diverse garden settings.
