There are many plants that can be used to hedge your garden, but some are better than others. Waterhousia, ficus, conifers and syzygium are all good plants for hedging. They are all fast-growing, so they will quickly form a hedge. They also require little maintenance, so you won’t have to spend a lot of time caring for them.
Our top 3 hedging trees include:
Waterhousia is a great plant for hedging because it grows quickly and has beautiful flowers. Waterhousia also grows very quickly and is resistant to pests and diseases. Waterhousia loves moist soil, so it is a good choice for gardens that have a lot of rain.
Ficus is a good choice for hedging because it grows quickly and has a wide range of shapes and sizes. Ficus can also be used to create either a formal or informal hedge. Ficus is resistant to pests and diseases, which makes it a good option if you are looking for a low-maintenance hedge. Lastly, ficus is an evergreen plant and has a dense foliage which means that your privacy will be maintained all year round.
If you want height with your hedge then you should consider using a conifer. They are slow-growing, but can reach heights of up to 30 feet. Some good choices for conifers include yew, juniper, and cypress.
So, what is the best plant to hedge your garden? It really depends on your needs and preferences. However, waterhousia, ficus, and ivy are all good choices. They are all fast-growing, require little maintenance, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. So, whichever one you choose, you can be sure that it will add beauty and privacy to your garden.
